Stay Cool

WANTAGH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Despite the blistering heat, over 100 children at Jones Beach played in an outdoor soccer tournament on Saturday, and didn’t seem to mind the temperature.

“It kinda feels like my thing,” 9-year-old Danielle told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall.
Some of the kids playing soccer said they don’t mind the weather at all.

“All I want to do is play soccer,” said 9-year-old Taylor.

Olivia, also 9-years-old, shared her secret to keeping cool while staying active.

“I drink a lot of water,” she said.

Saturday marks the seventh day of high temperatures in the area.

Some relief is on the way, meteorologists say. Though temperatures are expected to hit the 90s again on Saturday, a cold front Saturday night, with the potential to produce severe thunderstorms, is expected to send temperatures throughout the region dropping to the mid-80s on Sunday.
