Hazardous Weather Excessive Heat Watch

According to the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management, there is an Excessive Heat Watch in effect from Thursday, August 11 afternoon through Saturday for Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer Counties. Heat index values may reach 100 degrees on Thursday afternoon and may reach 105 degrees Friday and Saturday afternoons. There is a chance of scattered thunderstorms through Saturday.

Impacts to New Jersey

The Excessive Heat Watch means high temperatures and humidity are anticipated through Saturday. This creates the potential for heat-related illnesses. Take precautions to prevent heat stress for children, elderly, people who work outside and pets. Ponding on roadways, low-lying areas and places with poor drainage may result where localized thunderstorms occur.
