Unseasonably Hot Weather to Persist Through Thursday
Officials encourage residents to avoid heat by staying indoors
The National Weather Service is reporting unusually high temperatures, strong winds and low humidity through Thursday May 1, 2014.
These temperatures may result in heat related illnesses and heightened fire danger. Residents are encouraged to seek relief from the heat by drinking plenty of fluids, wearing loose-fitting clothing, and most importantly, staying indoors.
The City of Burbank will offer cooling centers during normal business hours at Burbank Public Libraries (Buena Vista Library at 300 N. Buena Vista Street, Burbank Central Library at 110 N. Glenoaks Boulevard or Northwest Branch Library at 3323 W. Victory Blvd). Indoor attractions such as the Burbank Town Center Mall and local movie theaters also offer temperature controlled environments.
