It’s Going to be a Scorcher Today. Stay Cool, Stay Hydrated.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat warning for much of Maine today—including York County.

The Portland Press Herald reports:

Heat advisory issued with parts of Maine expecting temps in the 90s

The combination of heat and humidity will make some spots in Maine feel like 100 degrees

on Thursday, prompting towns to open cooling centers and remind people to take

precautions against the soaring temperatures.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for parts of Maine, including

interior York and Cumberland counties, from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday. The advisory extends

over a huge geographical region starting in Sanford, slicing through Norway and Lewiston,

to Augusta, Skowhegan, Bangor and Millinocket. Coastal areas from Portsmouth, New

Hampshire, and Portland, to Rockland and Bar Harbor, will not be under a heat advisory, the

weather service said.

The advisory warns that the heat index will be in the mid-to-upper 90s and that the

temperatures and humidity could cause heat illnesses.

It could be the hottest day so far this year in some locations, the weather service said.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the high 80s and low 90s across most of Maine,

and could top 95 degrees in Sanford. High humidity will make it feel even hotter.
