The National Weather Service extended the advisory due to the prolonged high temperatures. This advisory affects several counties, including Bergen, Essex, and Passaic. Meteorologists predict the heat wave will last through the week, urging caution for those spending time outdoors.

Local officials recommend staying indoors, especially during peak heat hours, and staying hydrated. Cooling centers are available in many communities for those needing relief.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued an air quality alert. Residents, particularly those with respiratory issues, are advised to limit outdoor activities.

The heat wave adds to the challenges faced by the region during summer, impacting daily life and stressing infrastructure. As temperatures remain high, residents are urged to take precautions to stay safe.
