A high pressure system will continue to provide dry weather through the rest of the work week. With high pressure slowly sliding east during this time, our comfortable 70 degree temperatures will trend warmer and more humid by this holiday weekend bringing the chance for thunderstorms Saturday through the holiday weekend. With the warmer and more humid temperatures, it will be important to stay hydrated and take it easy outside. #BeatTheHeat
With the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend Holiday, and temperatures climbing into the mid-upper 80s, many of you may be considering a trip to a Great Lakes beach. Keep in mind that while the air temperature is hot, the water temperatures are still VERY cold. In fact, jumping into cold water can cause a reflective \"gasp\"-which allows water into your lungs. If this occurs, drowning is almost INSTANTANEOUS. We've had a number of drowning fatalities on the Great Lakes from this-many of which occur in the May-June time frame. If you're going boating, don't forget your lifejacket (don't just bring it-wear it!).
