Heads Up - Early Season Heat Wave Arrives This Week!

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A mostly dry, warm and muggy weather pattern is shaping up!

Dress for temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s through the morning commute, with patchy fog. The temperature warms into the 80s by 10 a.m. under a few clouds.

An isolated thundershower may pop-up away from the beach this afternoon with high temps in the 90s; slightly cooler near the water.

An even hotter weather pattern builds in later in the work-week. Under plenty of sunshine, temperatures peak around 100° by Friday and Saturday afternoons. In fact, multiple record high temperatures may be broken heading into Memorial Day Weekend.

Record high temperatures later this week –

Thursday, May 23rd - 99° in 2011

Friday, May 24th - 98° in 2011

Saturday, May 25th – 100° in 1953

Sunday, May 26th – 100° in 1953

New high temperature records are most-likely to be set Friday and Saturday afternoons. Coastal heat indices may exceed 105° late in the afternoon, through the holiday weekend.

The forecast remains mostly dry through the next seven days, with the greatest – but still isolated – chance of rain occurring Wednesday.

Stay cool,
