Weather Update: Heat warning issued for most of NJPosted: Updated:
Nearly all of New Jersey is under an excessive heat warning through Saturday evening as a large dome of high pressure brings stifling heat and humidity to the region.
Gregorio says the heat and humidity will combine to make it feel like 105 degrees today and as hot as 110 degrees on Friday and Saturday. Don't expect it to feel much cooler in the evening, when temperatures may not drop below 80 degrees.
An air quality alert is also in place for most of the state until midnight.
Gregorio expects the heat wave to break after Sunday.
