RED BANK: MUGGY HEAT BLANKETS REGION


With temperatures climbing to the mid-90s, a road crew laid down tons of hot asphalt to repave Broad Street in Red Bank Tuesday.

The workers hope to complete the job, part of an eight-month streetscape makeover from Harding Road to Front Street, in coming days. In the process, they’ll be contending with heat values as high as 105, according to the National Weather Service.¬†

The muggy heat and humidity are expected to linger, with a heat advisory in effect for most of Wednesday and daytime peaks in the 90s through the weekend. Check out the extended forecast below. (redbankgreen photos.  Click to enlarge.)
