Cooling centers opening around Northern California ahead of Memorial Day weekend heatwave

As dangerous high temperatures are rolling into Northern California, cities are opening their cooling centers to help people escape from the heat.

CALIFORNIA, USA — Cities across Northern California are opening up cooling centers as the first big heat wave is expected to hit during Memorial Day weekend.

ABC10 Meteorologist Monica Woods forecast that temperatures will range from the upper 90s to near 108 degrees from Sunday through Tuesday.

Temperatures will reach above normal reaching the mid-90s to low 100s for many parts of Sacramento and Northern San Joaquin Valleys.

This type of heat could be dangerous with possible heat illnesses like heat stroke. Those who are heat sensitive and without access to air conditioning and adequate hydration are also at risk.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those who wish to use the cooling centers would need to wear a face mask.

Splash pads will also be open daily to help beat the heat. Here's where to find an open cooling center or your nearby splash pad:
