The National Weather Service has issued a new heat advisory from 1-8 p.m. in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties Friday.

The NWS advises drinking plenty of fluids, wearing lightweight clothing, staying in air-conditioned rooms, and staying out of the sun as much as possible.
