BOSTON (WHDH) - Bostonians hit Carson Beach Monday as temperatures soared into the 90s during the third day of a heat emergency declared by city officials.

The heat emergency runs through Tuesday and officials said residents should take precautions against the sun and stay hydrated. Cooling centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Some hit or miss thunderstorms are due to settle around lunchtime Tuesday due to the rising humidity.

Some of that heat will be cleared out by Wednesday.

Because of the pandemic, cooling centers are running at reduced capacity. People are asked to pack light and bring their own water bottles.

The centers will screen people at the door and enforce wearing masks.

Both North End and Charlestown outdoor pools, the Mirabella Pool and Clougherty Pool, will also be open from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Capacity is limited and swimmers must register 24 hours in advance.
