The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory running through Tuesday evening for the counties of Central Missouri.
According to the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, summer heat can take a toll on health, especially in the elderly, very young, and chronically ill.
The department advises people to wear light-colored clothing, drink plenty of water, and use a hat or umbrella to keep the sun off of skin.
The best way to beat the heat is to remain in an air-conditioned area.
