The last day of the week brings the final day of New Jersey's late summer heat wave.

Friday will be one more day of temperatures in the 90s and increased humidity creating a real feel in the low 100s.

It will still be hot inside many classrooms without air conditioning, leading to one more day of early dismissals for many districts.

"Temperatures will start to slide backward Friday. But humidity will stay high. And we have to talk about daily thunderstorm chances through this weekend and next week," New Jersey 101.5 Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said.

Windfarm projects proposed for NJ coast — and what they might look like

These are the wind energy projects approved for and planned for the ocean off the coasts of New Jersey and New York. While the projects have the support of officials who say they will stimulate the local economy and create renewable energy to power millions of homes, many coastal residents have raised concerns about how the projects will impact tourism and the environment.

The gallery includes competing photosimulations — those on file with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and those recently commissioned by a group opposed to the wind farm development.
