Fans and air conditioners were going full blast all over Burbank today. The mercury soar to a blazing 100 degrees. The high humid — over 50 percent at times — made going outside difficult to bear. We’re used to dry heat — not the sticky humid conditions we had today. More of the same ahead, at least through tomorrow.
Due to the extreme heat, Burbank city officials opened three cooling centers today. Residents are encouraged to seek out a cool spot at one of three city libraries. Here are the hours and locations sent out in a media release:
Central Library (110 N. Glenoaks Blvd.)– 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mon-Thurs., 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, 10-6 Saturday, closed on Sunday.
Buena Vista Library (300 N. Buena Vista Street) –10 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon-Thurs., 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Saturday and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.
Northwest Library (3323 W. Victory Blvd.) – 12 noon -6 p.m. Mon-Fri; Closed Saturday and Sunday.
Get ready for another sizzler. The high tomorrow could reach into the triple digits again.
