Attention, residents of Eastern Bergen, Eastern Essex, Eastern Passaic, Eastern Union, Hudson, Western Bergen, Western Essex, Western Passaic, and Western Union County: A Heat Advisory has been issued from noon Tuesday to 8 PM EDT Wednesday.

What to Expect:

  • Heat Index Values: 95-100 degrees
  • Duration: From noon on Tuesday until 8 PM on Wednesday


  • Health Risks: The combination of high temperatures and humidity may lead to heat-related illnesses.
  • Vulnerable Populations: Seniors and individuals with chronic health issues or mental health conditions are particularly at risk.
  • Homes Without Air Conditioning: Residences without air conditioning can become significantly hotter than the outdoor temperature.

Precautionary Measures:

  1. Stay Cool:
    • Use Air Conditioning: If you have air conditioning, make sure to use it. If you don’t, find a location that does, such as a shopping mall, library, or cooling center.
    • Seek Cool Spaces: Continuously look for cool environments during the heat advisory and even a few days after if your home remains hot.
  2. Check on Others:
    • Friends and Family: Ensure vulnerable friends, family members, and neighbors are staying cool and hydrated.
  3. Stay Hydrated:
    • Drink plenty of fluids, especially water, to stay hydrated.
  4. Modify Outdoor Activities:
    • Schedule Breaks: If you must work outside, take frequent breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.
    • Occupational Safety: Follow OSHA guidelines to prevent heat-related illnesses by taking regular rest breaks.
  5. Emergency Measures:
    • Heat Stroke: Know the signs of heat stroke and take immediate action. Symptoms include high body temperature, confusion, and loss of consciousness. If someone shows signs of heat stroke, move them to a cool place and call 911 immediately.

Understanding a Heat Advisory:

A Heat Advisory is issued when the heat index is expected to reach 95-99 degrees for two or more consecutive days or 100-104 degrees for any duration. These conditions can pose serious health risks, especially for vulnerable populations.

Stay Informed and Prepared:

  • Monitor Weather Reports: Stay updated on local weather forecasts for any changes or extensions to the advisory.
  • Plan Ahead: Make plans to stay cool and safe during the advisory period.

By following these guidelines and staying informed, you can help protect yourself and others from the dangers of excessive heat. Stay safe and cool!
