Temperatures to feel as hot as 104 degrees in Massachusetts Tuesday

'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say Hot, sticky weather will cling to Maine this week

Northeast Ohio is under a heat advisory that could run through Sunday due to dangerously high temperatures and humidity expected this weekend, said the National Weather Service.

Temperatures are expected to reach near triple digits Sunday with heat index values as high as 106, according to the National Weather Service.

"The heat index will approach 100 degrees again during the afternoon hours on Tuesday through Thursday". He said the temperature in the metro area will be close to 90 degrees. Central Park hasn't reached 90 degrees seven days in a row since 33 years ago. The city could top 90 for up to seven consecutive days this week, something the National Weather Service in NY has said happens about once every 33 years.

The weather service says this oppressive heat dome will remain anchored in place over the Mid-Atlantic through the middle part of the week. Overnight temperatures should fall back into the 60s, and the highs should be in the low 80s over the weekend.

But until then most of ME, with the exception of coastal areas, should expect to endure extremely hot weather.

That EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING is now in effect for Jefferson, Lewis, Northern St. Lawrence and Southwestern St. Lawrence counties until Monday at 10 p.m. The combination of heat and humidity increases the risk for heat stress for those performing strenuous activity outside, the weather service wrote.

Three Portland television stations interrupted their regular Saturday evening programming to warn Mainers of the possibility of a tornado.

An excessive heat warning has been issued for Louisville.

Given it's the first heat wave of the summer, it is important to remember and practice hot weather safety measures.

"Heat-related illnesses possible through this time period, especially for at-risk populations such as the elderly, very young, and those with mental illnesses", the NY weather service office warned.

Monday's forecast calls for moderate levels of ozone along the coast from Kittery through the midcoast.

Some towns, including Scarborough, were taking steps to help citizens who might not have air conditioning.

Cooling centers are libraries, community centers, and senior centers.
