Forecasters say temperatures are expected to remain in the 90's across the state Friday, but they'll back off a bit from the near-record highs of the previous two days.

Officials at the National Weather Service say temperatures are expected to be in the mid-to-low 90's across New Jersey.

Forecasters say what we'll lose in degrees, we'll gain in humidity Friday, so another uncomfortable day could be in store.

Temperatures were just shy of record highs in major cities across New Jersey Thursday. Newark reached 99 degrees, just one degree short of its record for the date.

The weekend is expected to bring some relief.
