Following a week of blisteringly hot days and only slightly cooler nights, the weekend looks to provide more of the same for the Rumson-Fair Haven area for the next few days.
The National Weather Service is predicting a high temperature for today of 95 degrees with even higher levels to be reached over the weekend. The low temperature will only be around 73 degrees tonight before spiking back up to near 99 degrees on Saturday.
With the heat index it will likely feel closer to 103 on Saturday and even a chance of thunderstorms on Saturday night will not provide much relief for the area. Even after the rain passes, the high on Sunday figures to be around 90 before finally dipping down to close to 68 Sunday night.
It does not look like next week will be a whole lot better with highs in the 80's and lows in the 60's straight through to Thursday.
