    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    NBC 5 News

    The hottest temperatures so far this year will happen over this Memorial Day Weekend. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s under a mostly sunny sky. The normal high for Memorial Day Weekend is 86.

    Heat exhaustion and dehydration due to the heat are the leading weather-related killers in the United States. Here are some ways to help you stay cool:

    • Stay Hydrated - Drink enough fluid to prevent dehydration. Drink water, even if you don't feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
    • Keep Cool - If you feel overheated, decrease your intensity or stop. Also, take steps to cool yourself including: lying in a cool, shady place or applying cooling towels to the body.
    • Acclimate To The Conditions - It takes time for the body to adapt to the heat. Ease into an exercise regimen in the heat, especially in the first week.
    • Recognize The Signs of Heat Exhaustion - These can include nausea, headache, weakness, fainting, poor concentration, lightheadedness, loss of muscle coordination, fatigue and vomiting.
    • Wear the Right Clothing - Dress appropriately with clothing or accessories that are light, breathable and cooling. Try to avoid exercise in the warmest times of the day, and have a plan to contact medical professionals in an emergency.

    This weekend marks the start of a very hot stretch of weather.

    The Climate Prediction Center has the forecast through early June with well above normal temperatures. We are forecasting 100s almost every single day next week.
