Holiday weekend dangerously hot

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Few changes as a dominant ridge of high pressure holds firm. Sun/cloud mix with possibly a few pop up showers into early evening. Otherwise dry as summer-time heat continues with highs in the low-upper 90s through Friday.

The holiday period kicks off rain free but this stagnant weather pattern potentially brings record heat through Memorial Day. Nights remain warm with lows low-mid 70s. Days very hot as highs upper 90s low 100s potentially tie or break some long standing records. Albany's last 100 degree day way June 25, 2018.
