An Unusually Hot Memorial Day
RECORD HEAT POSSIBLE
We remain stuck under the influence of a strong ridge of high pressure that will keep us hot and dry until late into the week. Daytime highs will stay well above the norm pushing 10-15 degrees above where we should be this time of year. Nightly lows will stay milder than normal, too. There have been some record highs across Georgia and Alabama and it is definitely not out of the question to see more over the next few days.
Dew points will make the air sticky and heat indices could push over the century mark, but not anticipating any heat advisories. Still, you will need to take precautions in case you plan to spend time outdoors. Stay hydrated, wear loose fitting and light-colored clothing and don’t forget the sunscreen. As hot as it is outside, the heat will be deadly inside a vehicle. Double-check to make sure you do not leave children or pets in the backseat.
The dominating high pressure will move offshore late Wednesday/early Thursday as a frontal boundary heads toward the region. The front could stall just to the north of our area and could finally bring some much needed rain by Friday.
MEMORIAL DAY- Partly cloudy and hot with highs in the upper 90s.
TONIGHT- Mostly clear with lows in the low 70s.
TOMORROW- Mostly sunny with highs in the mid 90s.
