Hot time ahead for the holiday weekend
Break out the fans and air conditioners and get the pools ready as Mother Nature has a stretch of hot, humid weather just in time for the Memorial Day weekend for portions of the Midwest and East.
As cool air with gust winds sweep over the Southwest and snow falls over the high country in the Rockies, building heat over the southern Plains is forecast to surge northeastward later this week, according to AccuWeather.com RealFeel®.
While the pattern is only likely to last several days, it will feature the highest actual temperatures of the season so far, the weather service said.
Early-season warmth will evolve into a several-day stretch of 90-degree temperatures and high humidity with the core over the Ohio Valley states today into the Memorial Day weekend.
