It’s 11:30 in the morning and already 93 degrees at Clifford Park in Roxbury. But that isn’t stopping a group of middle school boys from …

"Playing baseball," said Diego Rojas. "That’s my life, you know.”

Rojas and Yuneor Nunez say they’ll play until it’s time to head over to the community pool.

“It’s burning out in the sun. My face is hot," Nunez said, laughing. "But baseball, the point is to be hot, to be in shape, you know what I mean?”

Standing nearby is Boston Public Health Commission spokesman Nick Martin.

“It’s rare in Boston that we have a stretch where it’s above 90 degrees or hovering right around 90 for so many consecutive days," Martin said. "But we’ve had some really warm weather, some really beautiful weather these past few days and I think everyone wants to be outside.”

Martin encourages people to take the usual precautions.

“Drinking plenty of water, finding a shady place to rest if you’re outside for a long time and get overheated, and checking in on your friends and neighbors, especially those at risk, elderly and young children,” Martin said.

But with temperatures expected to reach the mid-90s, the state Department of Environmental Protection says it’s not a good idea to exercise in the middle of the day.

“We’ve seen a projected air trajectory come more out of the Southwest and that brings out a number of pollutant loads out of the Mid-Atlantic or Midwest, contributors to ozone or air quality problems,” said DEP spokesman Joe Ferson.

“The air quality alerts that are expected over the weekend are not throughout the state but are in the Cape and in the South Coast, at this point," Ferson said. "Now, that can change, but I would advise people to check our website to see the data coming in from our various stations throughout the state.”

Throughout the state, and in Rhode Island, temperatures will vary, but are expected to remain in the 90s during the daytime. That is until Monday, when showers and thunderstorms are forecasted to cut the heat.
