BALTIMORE — A Code Red Extreme Heat Alert remains in effect in Baltimore City through Saturday.

Normally the alerts are issued when the heat index reaches extreme levels.

The index is determined in part by the amount of humidity and how hot it feels outside, rather than the actual temperature.

When a Code Red is called, cooling centers open.

The City has released an updated list of those locations.
