Record Heat!

Bridgeport set a new daily record high temperature yesterday of 95 degrees! The old record was 94 degrees, set in 1966.

No broken record in Hartford. The high was 92 degrees with a record of 97 (1966).

How was Bridgeport milder than Hartford? A northwest wind will do it everytime. We call that a landbreeze. A seabreeze is more typical in summer with wind blowing over the water. A seabreeze is the reason shoreline locations are usually cooler than inland areas in the warm months.
