The NWS has just issued a heat advisory for southern sections of western New Jersey thru most of the day on Saturday. We will hopefully see some relief from the heat and the humidity starting Sunday afternoon.

Some of the short range computer models are starting to hint there could be scattered thundershowers this afternoon starting as early as 3 pm. Be on the lookout for those if the skies turn stormy. We need all the rain we can get!
