Temperatures climbed into the mid- and upper-90s today in New Jersey, prompting city and school officials to take precautions against the heat.

Some schools ended classes at noon today, including the North Plainfield School District where officials decided to shorten school today and Thursday, said Marilyn Birnbaum, district superintendent.

“I know yesterday people were very happy that we made that decision. I think people really stress out over the heat,” she said shortly before classes let out today. Newark issued a heat advisory today and advised people to seek air-conditioned shelter during the day’s hottest hours: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The city set up several cooling centers for residents to take refuge from the heat. “I urge our senior citizens and Newark residents who lack air conditioning to come to one of our cooling centers, where they can find relief during this hot spell,” Newark Mayor Cory Booker said in a news release. The reason for these unseasonably high temperatures is a high-pressure system that’s sitting over much of the Eastern United States. Other systems aren’t moving through, meaning the heat lingers. Thursday will see similarly high temperatures throughout the state, and some cities will climb close to 99 degrees, said Lauren Nash, a National Weather Service meteorologist. “But Friday we’ll get a break — it’ll be 90,” Nash said. Libraries and community center in Woodbridge and Perth Amboy became cooling centers today as municipal leaders sought was to cool off their residents, and head off any health problems from the near-record breaking heat. In Woodbridge, town officials said residents could escape the heat in eight air-conditioned buildings, including the community center, four libraries, senior centers and town hall. Any residents without air condition or transportation should call the Division on Aging “Beat the Heat” program at (732) 855-0600, ext. 5023, or the township police at (732) 634-7700 for assistant. The township is loaning fans to senior or disabled residents without access to cooling devices. In Perth Amboy, the Jankowski Community Center on 1 Olive Street, and the city library at 196 Jefferson St, will be open until 5 p.m., and the gymnasium at the Raritan Bay Area YMCA at 357 New Brunswick Ave. will be open until 9:45 p.m. Residents can get information about the centers by calling (732) 826-0290, ext 4006.
