List: Cooling zones open up amid scorching heat wave

Triple digit is in the forecast for Northern California. Here's where to find cooling centers to stay cool.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, Calif. — Northern California is in for a scorcher in the coming days.

ABC10 Meteorologist Rob Carlmark forecast that temperatures will range and vary between 100 to 108 degrees in the hottest locations from Friday to Sunday. Saturday is expected to be the hottest with a high near 108 degrees for the Sacramento area.

It'll be a long run of scorching temperatures, stretching at least through Wednesday, Aug. 19. 

The upcoming heat wave is pushing some officials to open up cooling centers to the public. For the first time since 2017, cooling centers are opening in Sacramento, even though the forecast doesn't meet the county's criteria

"We're still going to move forward," Janna Haynes, Communication and Media Officer at Sacramento Count, said.

So, if you need a reprieve from the heat, here's where to find an open cooling center.
