NORWALK - Residents across southwestern Connecticut found ways to keep cool Monday as temperatures reached 90 degrees.

Patrons who lined up for outdoor dining and ice cream at Norwalk Harbor told News 12 they plan on beating the heat this summer at the beach and with air conditioners.

Home Depot says it wasn't quite hot enough today to boost air conditioner sales in the area, but says that may change over the next few days.

Connecticut can expect sunshine and temperatures in the 90s Tuesday and Wednesday.
