Most of ME is heading into a stretch of heat and humidity that won't subside until Friday at the earliest, the National Weather Service in Gray said Sunday. This is the warmest heat wave of the year, placing over 80 million under heat advisories this Saturday.
The high temp on both Tuesday and Wednesday will be 92 degrees, according to forecasters.
Extreme heat can cause illness and death among the at-risk population who can't stay cool.
Other areas may still feel like they're at or above 100 degrees because of the heat index, which indicates what the temperature feels like.

Some inland areas of ME, such as Fryeburg, could find themselves in a heat wave, which is defined as three consecutive days of 90-degree temperatures.
