Be careful, Montclair: Another heat wave through Wednesday
High temperatures are predicted for Montclair this week, just a week after the heat index reached 104 degrees.
The National Weather Service said Tuesday morning that the heat advisory would remain in effect until 8 p.m. Wednesday, with heat index values reaching above 100 degrees.
“Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that has air conditioning,” the NWS said in its advisory. “Check on vulnerable friends, family members and neighbors.”
The township has not opened up official cooling centers — as it did during last week’s heatwave — because the advisory is only scheduled to last two days, Montclair Communications Director Katya Wowk said.
But residents are still welcome in the air-conditioned Montclair Municipal Building and Montclair Public Library, Wowk said.
The Montclair Municipal Building is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Montclair Public Library is open Tuesday from noon to 7 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Mountainside Pool and Nishuane Pool are also open this week to members from 12:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
