NEW YORK (AP) - Officials are advising New Yorkers to hydrate and avoid daytime exercise amid a summer heat wave.

State health officials say Friday air-conditioned libraries, malls and supermarkets as well as cooling centers are good places to beat the heat.

The National Weather Service says temperatures reached 94 degrees Friday in Central Park. But adding humidity makes it feel much warmer. The heat index at LaGuardia International Airport reached 102 degrees.

Forecasters say temperatures will again reach into the low 90s on Saturday and Sunday but the humidity will be lower.

Officials in Westchester County announced public swimming pools will be opened an extra hour on Saturday and Sunday.

And city emergency management officials said city pools will be open until 8 p.m. on Saturday.
