Very Hot Highs Near 100: Alan’s Weather Blog
High temperatures yesterday reached the middle, and locally, upper 90s.
Newark Liberty Airport reached 98, which broke the old record there of 97 set all the way back in 1953. Atlantic City’s 95 tied the record that was set a few years ago in 2010 of 95. It was 97 at Wrightstown, Burlington County.
It was a degree or 2 hotter than I had expected.
Today, I think it will be near or approaching 100. There may be some relief near the ocean, but sunny, very hot, and humid again today.
Mostly clear, very warm and humid tonight with most lows in the 70s, but closer to 80 in the big cities.
Some sunshine, still hot and humid tomorrow, but with thunderstorms a good bet to develop tomorrow afternoon and evening with clouds ahead of them. We may only be in the low to middle 90s, if that, but some 80s possible at the beaches Friday.
We’ll have some showers and thunder Friday night, maybe with some heavy downpours.
And there’s still the chance early Saturday of leftover showers and some sunshine, then warm and less humid in the 80s.
Some sunshine with Sunday highs in the mid 80s, but cooler at the beach.
The ocean water temperatures are in the upper 60s to around 70 now.
