Much of the Bay Area, including Napa County, will face a heat advisory on Tuesday as temperatures are expected to reach the mid-90s or higher.

The National Weather Service announced the advisory for 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, covering the interior North Bay and East Bay as well as the Santa Clara Valley and eastern Santa Clara hills. Residents are advised to drink fluids, stay out of the sun and check on vulnerable relatives and neighbors.

Tuesday temperatures are expected to reach the middle to upper 90s in areas covered by the heat advisory, according to the weather service.
