REVERE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — There is just one day left of the heat wave in Massachusetts before temperatures begin to dip back down -- and beach-goers in Revere are looking forward to the relief.
"I live on the beach so it's been very hot...there hasn't even been a breeze, it's been very humid," Rosa of Revere said.
She added that the weather has been particularly hard as well on her dog, Buddy.
"[He] stays in the house," she said. "I take him out [in the early morning] and late at night -- he doesn't do well with the heat."
Rosa, along with several others in the area, have opted to hit the beach earlier over the past few days to do things like relax or get a workout in before the over 90-degree weather settles in.
"We get out early -- like the sun is going to come up in 15 minutes and be right in my eyes by the time we get to the end of Carey Circle there, it's going to be hot," one man said.
While many will be spending the rest of the day in front of their air conditioning units, people that have to work outside, like construction workers, said they will be drinking a lot more water than usual to avoid overheating.
Tuesday also marks the last day of the heat emergency declared by Acting Boston Mayor Kim Janey. The city will still have cooling centers open throughout the day on Tuesday to help residents and others in the area beat the heat.
