First Alert Forecast

This Memorial Day weekend will feature high temperatures in the lower 90s (and near records) along with dew points in the lower to middle 70s, meaning humidity will be rather uncomfortable, if not oppressive at times. The heat index, or feel-like temperatures each afternoon will likely be in the middle 90s. The weekend will feel like July and August, not late May.

We also cannot rule out a pop-up shower/thunderstorm Saturday afternoon/evening but certainly a majority of the weekend looks sunny, hot and humid. There will be plenty of dry time and sunshine for outdoor activities. Don't forget the sunscreen and/or a hat. As conditions are very hot, be sure to keep pets inside/hydrated as well.

Look for abundant sunshine on Sunday and Monday while most remain dry and close to record breaking temperatures. Rain chances will return again by mid-week and temperatures stay in the 80s and 90s for the next week.
