...RECORD HEAT EXPECTED THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND...

An extended period of unseasonably hot temperatures across north
and central Georgia can be expected through the middle of next
week.

Widespread high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s are
expected, with some locations exceeding 100 degrees especially
along and south of a Columbus to Macon to Warrenton line in middle
Georgia. These temperatures are around 15 degrees above normal
for late May. In addition, little relief is expected during the
night as temperatures only fall into the 70s for most locations
and no precip is expected in the area until possibly Wednesday or
Thursday. The unusual heat, this early in the season, will likely
break several daily high temperature records across the region and
will put all-time monthly records in jeopardy over the Memorial
Day weekend.

Please take extra precautions for the heat by remaining hydrated,
avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and limiting strenuous
activities when spending time outdoors. Also, Look Before You
Lock, and don`t leave children or pets unattended in a hot
vehicle.
