MANITOWOC COUNTY - While it's typically cooler on the Lakeshore, not so much Thursday.
Ninety-one to 93 degrees from Algoma and Kewaunee to Manitowoc and Sheboygan.
The area is also under a heat advisory.
People looking to find relief from the heat headed to Neshotah Beach in Two Rivers.
"It's really hot outside so we figured we'd take the kids to the beach because it's nicer than in our house," said Kayla Hood of Manitowoc.
This group of friends and family hit the waters of Lake Michigan to keep their cool.
"It's really great, it's really good to get cool when it's 90 degrees outside," said Nathan Fencil of Two Rivers.
Beachgoers say temperatures down by the lake feel a little better, but not much.
"Not really, but it's cooler enough that you can enjoy the water and not sweat all day," said Hood.
While most came to the beach to escape the intense heat, others here embraced the sun's hot rays.
"Actually I'm trying to take in the sun as much as I can. At least it's not too, it's hot, but yesterday was very hot, but it's nice I like it," said Elise Winter of Manitowoc.
Those who find the heat miserable could avoid the outdoors, and their too hot homes altogether, by taking advantage of a cooling shelter at the Manitowoc Senior Center.
"The heat index is really bad, we have a lot of seniors, or anybody around here, that may not have air conditioning, and it's just been tremendously hot the last few days for Manitowoc. It normally isn't like this," said recreation supervisor, Denise Larson.
The facility extended its hours Thursday. It will be open until 8 p.m. for the cooling shelter. That's a relief for senior center regular, Sandra LeMay.
"Definitely I'm taking advantage of it, big screen TV, cold water, I mean better than sitting home with four fans and a cold rag going over your face," said LeMay.
LeMay says she can't stand the heat, even with four fans in her home.
"Last night I was home by 4:00, and by 8:00 I was throwing up from the heat," said LeMay.
From the beach to the cooling center, people are finding ways to beat the heat until it goes away.
Again, the center at 3330 Custer Street will remain open until 8:00 Thursday night.
Anyone is welcome.
Senior center officials say the cooling shelter will be open again Friday if the heat advisory remains.
