Harford County is under a heat advisory from noon until 7 p.m. Friday, and county government has opened cooling centers in response.
Temperatures are expected to reach the mid 90s with heat index values ranging from 105 to 108 degress, according to the National Weather Service.
A heat advisory will go into effect for the county at noon.
High temperatures and humidity can cause heat-related illnesses, so the NWS urges people to drink plenty of fluids and stay in the air conditioning, out of the sun.
Due to the heat, county libraries will double as "cooling centers" during normal business hours.
Harford County Public Libraries are opened at 10 a.m. and will remain open until 5 p.m. with the exception of the Darlington branch, which is open from 1 until 5 p.m.
