New Jersey may see its late-August heat wave extend to a fourth straight day on Thursday, but it will not go any further, with rain moving in during the afternoon and sticking around, on and off, through Saturday.
If you can find relief in the third consecutive day of high heat on Wednesday, you'd be wise to do so. A built-in reprieve, in the form of intermittent rain showers, will begin to bring temperatures back down by Thursday.
Monday marks one week until Labor Day, after which New Jersey kids will be back in school and the fall, for all intents and purposes, will begin. But the summer of 2018 is not going down without a fight.
