Westporters Welcome the Heat

Westport students Sophie Mafilios and Sophie Rosen aren't sweating the two-day heat wave that will hit the town beginning Wednesday.

The National Weather Service is forecasting mostly sunny skies with a high of 94 for Wednesday. On Thursday, expect partly cloudy skies with a high of 96.

"I like it when it's hot — I just don't like it when it's humid," Rosen said Tuesday as she and Mafilios cooled off with some frozen yogurt from Top This Frozen Yogurt on Post Road East.

Besides seeking relief with frozen treats, these two Bedford Middle School eighth-graders said they plan to keep cool by wearing appropriate summer attire — tank tops and shorts.

For Mafilios, another sure-fire way to keep cool includes swimming. "When it gets really hot, I invade my friend's houses who have pools," she said. Rosen, on the other hand, said she seeks the air-conditioned indoors when the heat gets unbearable.

When resident Kristina Gold heard about the upcoming heat wave, she said she'll be "stocking up on lots of iced coffee from Starbucks."

"I have to work, so I unfortunately won't be heading to the beach or anything," she said Tuesday as she left Starbucks with an icy beverage in hand.

Like Gold, Dave Flynn said he, too, will be spending most of Wednesday and Thursday working in an air-conditioned office, so he's not concerned about the heat. However, he plans to hit Long Island Sound after work.

"That's my favorite thing about summer — the sun is up until almost 9 p.m., so I can enjoy a few hours out on the boat," he said. "And it will a lot less hot, but still nice."
