Most of the day will be dry, warm and humid. Plan on morning temperatures in the upper 60s and climbing to the upper 70s by Noon. Dew points are also forecast in the low/mid-60s so it will be humid too. Keep yourself hydrated!

Memorial Day will bring a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the low 80s. Tuesday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-80s. The good news is, the humidity will come down a bit to start the week. Showers and t-storms will once again arrive by the middle of next week. --Danielle Dozier
