Today temperatures have been hot all across the state, even down to the shoreline.

Unofficial high temperatures as of 4:27 p.m.
96°: New Haven
95°: Stratford (Sikorsky Airport) *record high*
93°: Groton
93°: Hartford (Brainard Airport)
93°: Meriden
93°: Windham
93°: Windsor Locks (Bradley International Airport) 
92°: Danbury 

The highest heat index value was 100° at Groton, with New Haven a close second at 99°.

Usually the inland areas get the hottest during the summer, but today that was not the case. With high pressure over western Pennsylvania, winds were out of the northwest to north across Connecticut. This meant that there was no sea-breeze to cool things off along the shoreline. Also, with the ridge of high pressure to our southwest, the warmest above the ground is also to our south. The end result is that southern Connecticut had some of the hottest readings today.
