WASHINGTON (AP) Weather and health officials are advising Washington area residents to stay cool as temperatures could climb above 100 degrees.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory until 11 p.m. Monday. The weather service says the conditions raise the risk of heat-related illnesses.

The Metropolitan Council of Governments is expecting smog to rise to Code Orange Sunday. That means air quality could become unhealthy for children and adults who have breathing difficulties outdoors and for those who have respiratory and heart ailments.

Washington Adventist Hospital says people should limit outdoor activities during peak hours.

The humidity has also created challenges for Pepco and Dominion Power crews working to restore power to those who’ve been without it since last week’s storms.
