BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo's 10 open splash pads will be open an extra hour on Monday to help families cool down from the heat, Mayor Byron Brown announced.
A heat advisory has been issued for parts of WNY as high temperatures will be reaching 90 degrees this afternoon.
“When the heat index pushes into the 90s, we are pleased to keep the splash pads open an extra hour and encourage residents to take advantage of this way to beat the heat,” Brown said. “I also remind residents to be cautious about over-exertion during this week’s high heat and excessive humidity. Please check on your older family members, neighbors and friends to make sure they are staying cool and hydrated.”
