Hello and welcome to summer.
It's that time of the year again, officially, and greeting Monmouth County residents on the first day of summer was a heatwave accompanied by an official excessive heat warning from the state.
With temperatures expected to reach as high as the mid-90's and the heat index reading even higher, residents are urged to take precautions to stay cool and out of direct sun. Truth be told, the best place to be right now is somewhere with air conditioning and an internet connection so you can keep up dated with Patch.
Check out the video from last summer for a classic look at the perils of heat, and tell us what you're doing to keep cool in the comments below.
