Should I still hike in the heat?

It's going to be 98 degrees and humid in the NYC area this Saturday (NPR says it will feel like 104 degrees). I'm supposed to go on an eight-hour hike on Bear Mountain/Stony Point. Is this safe? Advisable? Is there any chance it would still be pleasurable?

I know it will be a few degrees cooler on Bear Mountain, but it can't get all that much cooler. I paid some cash to go on the hike (it's sponsored by a club and provides transportation) and have been looking forward to it, but I'm not sure this is a good idea.
