An air quality alert is in effect for tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a “Code Orange” alert for the region in advance of the heat and humidity that will invade the area.
“Air pollution concentrations within the region may become unhealthy for sensitive groups,” the alert advises. “Sensitive groups include children, people suffering from asthma, heart disease or other lung diseases, and the elderly.”
The alert says to avoid strenuous activity and exercise indoors to minimize the effects of air pollution.
Summer-like warmth will stick around until Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
Forecasters expect temperatures to hit the lower to middle 90s inland but remain cooler at the Shore, saying to take normal precautions against the heat.
