Things are heating up this Memorial Day with temps near the 90s forecast today. It is going to be sticky the next few days with dew points in the mid to upper 60s through the end of the week as temps track into the 90s beginning Tuesday. Overnight lows will be above average as well with temps only falling to the upper 60s through Friday. Outside of an isolated afternoon rumble of thunder, rain, and storm chances will remain minimal at best through midweek with high pressure in control of the region.

Near normal highs return for the weekend with temps reaching the mid-80s Saturday and Sunday.
