Nearing record high temperatures for Memorial Day
We're onto day 5 with 90+ degree highs. We will see this for another 5 days, at least! Sunday broke a record high, and it's possible we'll break another record high today. We are forecasting 94. The record high today is 95, set in 1911. It's possible we'll either tie or break this 107 year record.
The dry spell also continues, as little to no rainfall is expected this for most of the week. A stray shower is possible Tuesday. Thursday night through Friday could bring a little bit of rainfall, but this would be minor with most areas staying dry. Little relief comes at night too, as lows only dip to the low 70s. I'm seeing a slight dip by Friday, as temperatures may reach the mid 60s-which is still 5 degrees above normal for the start of June. There is a Special Weather Statement for our folks in Georgia, reminding us to "Look for you Lock", and don't leave children or pets unattended in a hot vehicle. The unusual heat this early in the season has already resulted in broken records. Additional records are likely to be broken in the next several days.
