RECORD HEAT EXPECTED THROUGH MID-WEEK…

An extended period of unseasonably hot temperatures will continue through the middle of next week across north and central Georgia.

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.

Thesetemperatures 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 in many locations. In addition, little to no precipitation is expected in the area until possibly the end of next week.
The unusual heathis early in the season has already resulted in broken records and additional records are likely to be broken in the next several days with all time monthly records in jeopardy as well.

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.
