“Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can cause the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high-risk category,” the weather agency said.

On Tuesday evening, a cold front is expected to move through the area, bringing showers and thunderstorms and ending the heat and humidity.
