With temperatures set to rise above 90 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday, local swimming pools are sure to be a hot spot. A high of 92 on Tuesday and 90 on Wednesday can bring thunderstorms, too.

Even with temperatures near 80, and a threat of storms Monday, residents didn’t scare away while swimming at the James S. Keiper Park in Kingston.

Other community pools open in the area for the summer are in West Pittston at 350 Baltimore Avenue; Forty Fort on Wyoming Avenue, between Fort and Walnut streets; the Kistler Pool on Old River Road in South Wilkes-Barre; and Moon Lake in Plymouth Township.

Temperatures are expected to go back down to the 80s until Saturday, bringing mostly sunny skies. Sunday’s forecast brings a sunny sky with 75 degree temperatures.
