The ocean breeze and cool salt water in Hampton will offer beachgoers relief from the heat and humidity expected on Tuesday.

Andy Pohl, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said on Monday morning that Tuesday will be the best day to take a ride to the beach this week because it will be hot inland with temperatures in the mid-80s.

"Tomorrow will be the warmest day and it will be muggy," Pohl said.

Temperatures will be in the upper 70s along the coastline, Pohl said.

Pohl said that looking ahead, Friday and Saturday may also be pleasant enough to plan a trip to Hampton Beach.

For people who can't escape the heat, there are tips available for avoiding heatstroke and heat exhaustion on the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Prevention website.

They include:

-Stay inside air-conditioned places such as libraries and shopping malls

-Drink plenty of water

-Check on neighbors and friends at risk for heat-related illnesses

-If going outdoors, wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
