With temperatures expected to hit the mid-nineties across our region, it's suggested you find and stay in a cool place today. In addition, it's strongly recommended that you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. Our Brad Vivacqua has more on the warm weather.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- On a day like today, you may want to head to the local beach or take a dip in the pool to cool off. Whether you're inside or out today, you'll want to make sure to have plenty of water near you throughout the day.
When it comes to days like this, there are some jobs that are a little more comfortable to have than others. At Holiday Ice in Syracuse, the temperature is set at around 15 degrees in their production plant to keep thousands of ice bags cold and firm.
This week through July 4th is generally the company's busiest time of the year. Employees say the cool indoor temperature is something they're used to, but on a hot day, it's an added relief from the hot temperature outside.
"Definitely, when it's like this we'll pretty much tend to stay in the patching room, most of the day. It's way too hot, especially when you're acclimated to being in the colder temperatures all day. And, even through our lunch breaks we'll just kind of just hang out in here because it's not worth going outside," said Sal Barraco, Holiday Ice owner.
Holiday Ice generally produces between 30,000 and 40,000 bags of ice every day, and on a day like today, there's even more demand.
