Some like it hot. For the rest of us, the National Weather Service advises air conditioning, low exertion and plenty of fluids for the next few days.

A heat advisory will be in effect for Greater Morristown from 8 am on Sunday, July 1, 2018, through 8 pm on Monday, July 2.

The mercury could hit 100 degrees on Sunday, and daytime temperatures won’t drip below 90 until next weekend, according to long-range forecasts.

When combined with high humidity, these readings could spell danger, especially for the elderly and people in poor health, government forecasters say.

Morristown’s fire house at 161 Speedwell Ave. will be open as needed as a cooling center through Friday, July 6, 2018.  On weekdays, the senior center at town hall (200 South St.) will serve the same purpose, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
