ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for most of New Jersey, where the high is predicted to reach the upper 90’s today and possibly 100 on Thursday.
The heat advisory alert warns of particularly hot and humid conditions between noon and 8 p.m. today.
Schools in Howell, Lakewood and Marlboro are among several districts across the state that are planning to close early today and Thursday due to the heat.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection warns, “Ozone levels are forecast to reach the unhealthy for sensitive groups category across New Jersey due to westerly winds, hot temperatures, and abundant sunshine.
