Good morning! A very warm and muggy week is ahead as strong high pressure is centered over the region. Looking into feel like temperatures this afternoon through Thursday, they will peak each day between 100 and 110. I would not be surprised if the NWS in Morristown issues a heat advisory tomorrow or even Wednesday. Overall, the main threat will be the heat but a very isolated shower/storm can't be entirely ruled out during the afternoon and early evening each day. If storms were to develop they could be strong.
With the threat of very warm temperatures and heat indices well over 100, heat safety should be a top priority this week. Be sure to limit your outdoor time, find plenty of air conditioning, drink lots of water, and of course keep the sunscreen close by. Here are a few practices to keep in mind:
MUCH needed relief will make a return this weekend, as a cold front crosses the area Friday and brings some rainfall and cooler temperatures. Highs Saturday will range from the low to mid 80s, before the potential for very warm and muggy highs returns this time next week. For now, stay cool and enjoy that air conditioning! Be sure to watch our video forecast below for more information as well.
