EDISON - After seven straight days with temperatures in the 90s, relief is still a ways off for New Jersey.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says temperatures in the mid-80s overnight.

The southern half of the state remains under excessive heat watches and warnings through Saturday, when temperatures could be close to 100. That is expected to be the hottest day in a persistent heat wave. Curren says the streak could grow to at least 11 days, and maybe more.

Residents are urged to stay indoors and in air-conditioned areas, if possible. They also should drink lots of water and limit strenuous outdoor activities to the early morning or evening hours.
