EDISON - New Jersey endured another hazy, hot and humid day as temperatures climbed over 100 degrees in certain parts of the state.

Newark Liberty International Airport and Atlantic City Airport have both reached the 101-degree mark, shattering records from 2004 and 2008 respectively.

An excessive heat warning and heat advisory were in effect for most of the state, but residents felt some relief after quick-moving isolated thunderstorms rolled through the area.

PSEG says about 20,000 people were left without power throughout the state, mostly related to the storm. JCP&L also reported more than 10,000 outages because of the storm.New Jersey Cooling Centers List School ClosingsWeather CenterWatch News 12 Traffic and Weather
