List of Cooling Centers – NBC New York (47)

NEW YORK — The tri-state area remains in the midst of dangerous sweltering heat extremes.

The New York City Department of Emergency Management and the Department of Health are advising New Yorkers to take precautions to beat the heat.

Temperatures will climb back into the mid-90s on Thursday, and the humidity could be even more oppressive, making it feel like 100+ degrees in many places. An excessive heat alert is already in place for certain inland locations on Thursday.

Conditions can be dangerous at times, for especially vulnerable people and pets, so be sure to check with older neighbors so they are alert and safe. Although it will feel sweltering for the next two days, temperatures won’t reach anywhere near record highs in Central Park (Thursday is 104) for the day.

As bad as it was on Wednesday, it may get even worse for some in New Jersey on Thursday, with a excessive heat alert in effect for the central and southern parts of the state. In those areas, it might feel like 105-110 degrees.

The weekend may be the hottest days of the heat wave, with temperatures reaching over 95 degrees, with the hottest areas being interior New Jersey and the Hudson Valley. All-time highs could be challenged over the weekend, especially on Sunday.

To help New Yorkers beat the heat, New York City will open cooling centers in all five boroughs beginning Wednesday with extended hours.
