Are you ready for this weekend's extreme heat? Meteorologists are forecasting temperatures to reach 100 in several parts of the state, and the heat index will make it feel even more oppressive. As it gets hotter than it has been all year, most people will opt to stay inside, where there's some good air conditioning. But for folks that don't have AC in their homes, or for those who's AC units fail this weekend, there are places in the state that are free and open to the public to go to just to cool off.
