Twin Cities metro under Heat Advisory until Monday night

The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory from 1 p.m. Sunday until 10 p.m. Monday night in Hennepin County.

With a heat index expected to be in the 100s, several Minnesota counties are reminded to stay cool and hydrated.

The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
