2016-07-06_12-50-14DANGEROUS HEAT IS EXPECTED, PRIMARILY IN THE LATE MORNING THROUGH THE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS – USE CAUTION WHILE OUTDOORS

The heat and air quality alerts were issued in advance of the wave of hot and humid weather that will arrive Wednesday morning and linger into Saturday. In most parts of the Garden State, temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 90s, and the combination of heat and humidity – known as the heat index — will make it feel like it’s about 100 degrees or higher at times this week.

“Dangerous heat is expected, primarily in the late morning through the late afternoon hours,” the heat alert reads. “Hot and humid conditions may lead to strain on those outdoors in the heat along with sensitive groups, such as the elderly, children and pets.”

Forecasters are calling for a sunny afternoon, with highs around 94 across the state and a slight breeze.
