Pittsburgh's Greenfield, Homewood, Sheraden, and South Side community centers will remain open late on Wednesday for seniors needing relief from the heat.

The National Weather Service projects the high temperature at 84. But the city opens “cooling stations” when there is a possibility of the heat index — a measure of how it feels — reaching 90 degrees.

The centers are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Normally, they close at 4. They also are open until 7 p.m. Tuesday, as the high is expected to reach 90 degrees.

Refreshments and activities are provided. For more information, call Citiparks at 412-422-6405.
