A heat advisory is in effect around Washington and Baltimore from noon Tuesday to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to reach 100 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. When combined with humidity, the heat index could reach 105. Even at night, temperatures won't dip below 80.

On Monday afternoon, the weather service reported 98-degree temperatures at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and 95 degrees at Reagan National Airport.

It's a Code Red day for air quality in the Washington area, so people are advised to stay indoors.
