...LONG DURATION EARLY SEASON HEAT WAVE AND RECORD TEMPERATURES
POSSIBLE LATE THIS WEEK THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...

Temperatures will trend much warmer late this week through early
next week. Highs Thursday and Friday should reach the upper 80s to
lower 90s across the region. Scattered thunderstorms may keep
some areas slightly cooler, however.

The weather dries out for the holiday weekend into early next week
with even warmer temperatures expected. Near record highs in the
low to mid 90s are possible each day from Saturday through next
Tuesday. Peak heat indices Thursday through early next week will
be in the low to mid 90s.

Many will be outdoors this holiday weekend. While this level of
heat should be expected at times each summer, the quick transition
from winter in the last month may enhance the risk of heat
related illness for those active and unprepared.
