Where to Cool Off Around Nashville, and How to Stay Safe in the Heat Anywhere

August 5, 2010

I groaned earlier this week when an energy conservation reminder from the larger workplace indicated that “Temperatures in Middle Tennessee are predicted to hit 100° F this week and to remain in the high 90s throughout the rest of August.” Ugh. I know every summer is hot, but as a local news station’s weather blog says,

So far this year we have logged 48 days at Nashville where the afternoon highs hit at least 90 degrees. The typical summer we get 44 days in the 90’s and we still have all of August to get through.

Who’s got my popsicles and sprinkler?

WPLN has links for where to go to cool off around Nashville in addition to a Red Cross cooling shelter. Suggested sites for getting out of the heat include our 21 public library locations.

The CDC has tips for anyone experiencing extreme heat, including these hot weather tips.
