Heat and hazardous weather advisories have been posted across the state as ME braces for a week of sweltering humidity and warm air.

AccuWeather warns those in the Northeast may be particularly affected by the heat wave because this is the longest stretch of such high temperatures in the area since 2016 or longer.

"The heat may be fatal to anyone and pets left unattended in vehicles", the National Weather Service said.

Before the extreme heat in the middle part of the week comes the rain. The combination of heat and humidity increases the risk for heat stress for those performing strenuous activity outside, the weather service wrote. Temperatures will be in the lower 80s.
