- Limit outdoor activities during the hottest time of day (usually around 1-4 p.m.)

- Watch for hot pavement when walking dogs
- Try to stay in air-conditioned areas

If you’re looking to avoid the inland heat, you might want to head to the beach or one of the coastal cities in the Bay Area. According to KRON4 Meteorologist Mabrisa Rodriguez, it will be 70 degrees Tuesday on the coast.
