The City says temperatures are expected to spike Sunday, and with new guidelines allowing them to open shelters under less extreme temperatures, the will open cooling centers from 11 a.m.–8 p.m. until the forecast high drops below 95 degrees.

“Temporary cooling centers will be open for anyone who needs relief from the heat,” said Mayor Nadine Woodward. “We are also urging people to begin hydrating early and to check on friends and neighbors who may need a little assistance managing through the hotter weather.”

Currently, the Looff Carrousel has multi-purpose rooms open for cooling down, and while the Spokane Public Library centers are closed Sunday and Monday, they will be open the rest of the week as the highs approach 100.
