A few things you can do to stay safe in this intense heat: stay hydrated, drink plenty of water. Take frequent breaks in the shade if you are outside, or in the A/C if possible. Exercise first thing in the morning, which will be the coolest part of the day.

During a Heat Advisory, temperatures rise so much that heat exhaustion and heat stroke become more likely. Cooler weather will arrive Tuesday.
