CLEVELAND - Summer begins Wednesday, and the Power of 5 weather forecast shows it will be a steamy start to the season with temperatures into the 90s Tuesday and Wednesday.
Don't sweat. Local governments have cooling centers, programs and information to help you keep your cool.
From Parma Heights to Pepper Pike, Lindale to Lakewood, Westlake to Warrensville Heights and everywhere in between, extreme cooling centers will be ready throughout Cuyahoga County for when temperatures exceed 90 degrees.
The United Way's 211 First Call For Help program has a listing of all cooling centers in the county on its website .
Each center has different hours and facility amenities, so be sure to check before you go. For example, some centers do not open until 11 a.m. Some centers offer computer rooms, while others do not.
