Take time to check on your elderly neighbors and family members to make sure they have the ability to stay cool. Also, make sure your pets have access to cool air and plenty of fresh water.

While the Heat Advisory is in effect through Wednesday, it's possible that it could be extended into the latter part of the week.

Air Quality Tuesday is moderate due to particles in the air from the ongoing African dust storm. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality warns those who are "unusually sensitive to particle pollution, consider reducing your activity level or shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors."
