Thursday’s rain isn’t going to help cool things off in Andover, so the town has extended the Robb Center’s hours so it can continue to serve as a cooling center.
The forecast is calling for highs of 96 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with lots of sun and less than a 10 percent chance of rain on each day. The town extended cooling center hours through Thursday earlier in the week.
The updated schedule:
- Thursday: Open until 8 p.m.
- Friday: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Saturday: Noon – 7 p.m.
- Sunday: Noon- 7 p.m.
Andover officials are also recommending Memorial Hall Library as a place to get out of the heat. The library is open from 9 am to 9 pm Monday through Thursday and 9 am to 5 pm on Fridays and weekends.
Pomps Pond at 147 Abbot Street is open weekdays from noon to 7 pm and weekends from 10 am to 6 pm. We have additional information on Pomps Pond and other nearby places to go for a swim.
The town’s statement also includes tips for staying safe in extreme heat.
