The dry air is here just in time for the long holiday weekend!  Saturday will be an 11 on the WIZometer.  Temperatures start off at 59, then move up to 83 in the afternoon.  We will also have drier air in place.  The air won't feel as muggy thanks to the lower humidity.

Sunday looks nice, too.  We will have mostly sunny skies.  We will get a little warmer as high temperatures move up to 86.

Memorial Day we'll crank up the heat with highs in the upper 80s with a mostly sunny sky as well. Drink plenty of water if you will be out at any services on Memorial Day with how hot it is forecast to be outside.

Temps continue climbing day by day as we transition from the weekend into next week. As the heat and humidity build, eventually a more typical summer-like pattern returns with isolated daily showers/storms. That 20% chance of a stray shower or storm builds back in starting next Wednesday.
