Scorcha coming: Boston heat emergency declared for Sunday, Monday

Mayor Walsh declared a city heat emergency for Sunday and Monday due to expected wicked hot temps, which means many community centers will be open as cooling centers between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday and 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday (complete list). Because we're still in a Covid-19 emergency, you'll need to wear a face covering to get in - and you'll probably want to call ahead to make sure the center you want to go to hasn't reached its new, reduced capacity.

Brookline also declared one, but has said all the indoor cooling centers remain closed, and instead they're setting up an outdoor tent with misting stations.

They work great in Arizona.

Not sure they are much help when the weather is like the inside of your mouth.
