NEVER leave a pet in the car because even with the windows open, temperatures can rise dramatically.  You wouldn't want to be left in the car during the summer, neither would your pet.
If you suspect that your pet is having a heatstroke, take them to the nearest animal hospital.  Here is a list of local emergency clinic which are open 24/7, even on holidays.  It is very important to not drop your pet's temperature too low, too fast during a heatstroke. On the way to an animal hospital, place your pet in an air conditioned  car, place cold packs wrapped in towels on them, and slightly wet your pet's foot pads and forehead with cool water to slowly cool down your pet.  Do not wet down your pet with ice cold water, as it can send them into shock. 
Your weather just got better.
