...Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

* heat index values...up to 104 across Metro northeastern New Jersey...and peaking around 100 elsewhere. This will be due to temperatures in the lower to mid 90s and dewpoints in the lower to mid 70s.

* Timing...highest heat indices this afternoon.

* Impacts...the combination of the heat and humidity will increase the risk for heat related health issues...especially for the elderly...those with chronic health problems such as lung and heart disease...those working outdoors...and other heat sensitive groups of people.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory is issued when the combination of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 100 to 104 degrees for two consecutive hours.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends... family members and neighbors.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
