NJ faces stretch of how weather

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey is facing a stretch of hazy, hot and humid weather.

An excessive heat warning remains in effect for Mercer, Gloucester, Camden and northwest Burlington counties. A heat advisory is posted for the rest of the state.

Forecasters say the heat and humidity will combine to make it feel like the temperature is in the triple digits for most of the week. Forecasters say the heat will feel the worst during the late afternoon hours.

The National Weather Service says the worst day will likely be Thursday, when the heat index could reach 110 degrees.

Forecasters say the heat wave should finally break during the weekend, with cooler temperatures on Sunday.

Residents are urged to stay indoors in air-conditioned areas if possible, and drink lots of water.
