    Storms Suspend Play at Travelers
    Jack Kane, NBC Connecticut
    Severe weather halted play at Travelers on Friday.

    After two days of high heat, there are storms in the area of Rocky Hill and Cromwell, suspending play at the Travelers golf championship.

    The course was evacuated and a sign warned of dangerous weather because of lightning in the area and warned people to seek safe shelter. 

    Play is expected to resume at 2 p.m., according to officials from the PGA.

    Highs will reach around 93 inland today and 88 at the beaches.

    Thunderstorms will develop across the state and could linger through the evening.

    Widespread severe weather is unlikely, according to NBC Connecticut meteorologist Ryan Hanrahan, but storms will be widespread and bring downpours, lightning and gusty winds.

    To help residents tolerate the heat, several cities and towns have opened cooling centers.
