PORTLAND, Maine — The National Weather Service has issued heat advisories for much of Maine. It will feel like 100 degrees at times Monday afternoon. Use common sense and take it easy. Stay in the shade and air conditioning as much as possible.
Some cities and towns, such as Portland, have opened up cooling stations for people searching for relief. Check with your town or city to see if there are any cooling stations near you.
We've already seen some very hot days this year. Looking back, the hottest day was June 7. On that day, Portland had a high of 94 degrees and Bangor hit 93 degrees. Monday's heat will rival that.
There may be an occasional thunderstorm to offer up temporary relief, but this heatwave isn't expected to break down until Thursday. Hang in there.
