ANNAPOLIS - Anticipating more high temperatures for this week, Anne Arundel County has opened cooling centers from Monday, Aug. 27 through Thursday, Aug. 30, county officials said.
Temperatures are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90s with oppressive humidity raising the heat index to feel hotter than 100 degrees. The heat and humidity also contribute to poor air quality conditions.
