Temperatures will hit the mid to high 90s in a number of Orange County communities.

Residents are advised to restrict outdoor activities to early morning and evening hours, wear lightweight clothing, and never leave children, seniors or pets in vehicles parked in hot weather.

In anticipation of the week’s heatwave, the City of Glendale Community Services & Parks Department is opening cooling center at certain community centers.

Social distancing protocols will be observed, participants must wear a face covering at all times, and will undergo a temperature check prior to entering the facility.
