Here Comes The Heat To New Jersey

Earlier in the week it was too much rain. Now it’s too much heat as the summer’s third heat wave gets underway.

While temperatures have been in the 80s with high humidity the past several days, highs will reach the 90s the next several days as a Bermuda High parks itself off the Atlantic coast.

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for most of New Jersey from 11 a.m. on Saturday through 8 p.m. Sunday as temperatures in the 90s and high dew points combine for a heat index temperature of 100 degrees.

An Excessive Heat Watch issued earlier for Saturday and Sunday for Mercer, Gloucester, Camden and Burlington counties remains in effect as temperature will feel at least 102 degrees.

Salem, Atlantic, Cape May & Cumberland counties are not under an advisory but it will be nearly as hot and humid in those areas as well.

There is also a chance at thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon and evening. That threat will increase again as the week goes on.

New Jersey’s high temperatures on Friday were 94 in Hawthorne, 93 in Harrison and 92 in East Brunswick and Newark.

The heat will continue for much of the week as temperatures stay around 90 degrees.

It is recommended that you drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun and check on relatives and neighbors.
