NBC Connecticut Meteorologist Bob Maxon gives the morning forecast for Friday July 5th, 2013
People across the state spent yesterday at the beaches, trying to stay cool, and the shoreline is expected to be crowded again today.
It will be a nice day at the shore, with highs of 86 degrees and a water temperature of 73 degrees.
Excessive heat advisories are in effect from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. in Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties, so bring water if you will be outside for extended periods.
