Hot, sticky weather will cling to ME this week

Newark has an expected heat index of 105, while Trenton will feel like 106 when temperatures peak around 3 p.m. Monday. Highs this afternoon will warm into the low 90s, while the "feels like" temperature climbs into the 100ºF - 105ºF range. Any storms that do form will move slowly, so they could drop heavy rain onto parched soil. There is a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with the best chances north and west of the Interstate 95 corridor.

Philadelphia, which hit 92 degrees on Sunday with a heat index of 105, similarly sounded the alarm to its residents and visitors about the risky heat. Fryeburg's high Sunday was 92 degrees, with a heat index of 97 degrees.

It looks like we are going to stay in this pattern of seeing scattered afternoon and early evening shower and thunderstorms for Friday through the weekend as well.

Agency leader Greg Olsen said Friday that hot weather can be particularly unsafe for older adults, especially those who live alone, are low-income or have chronic health conditions. As of now, storms that develop could be potent, potentially strong to severe... we'll keep you updated as we get closer in time.

The ridge of heat will gradually shift east by the second half of the week, which enable storm chances to increase slightly over the area.

After the 4th festivities, Thursday will be dry with highs into the low 90s.

Tuesday night: Clear skies with temperatures dipping down into the high 70s. Also, don't forget to check on the young, the elderly, and pets, all groups more susceptible to the excessive heat.

Meteorologist Nick Greenalalt said while temperatures were high Friday, it was not quite as humid.

If you're looking ahead to the Fourth of July, here's what you need to know about road closures, fireworks and, of course, traffic and weather. Highs will run 81-85 Saturday & 83-88 Sunday with sunshine & a few clouds.
