The hazy, hot weather will continue Saturday in the Twin Cities.
KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas said the high could reach 94 degrees. The record for this date is 96. He added sunscreen will be a must if heading outdoors for any length of time.
And it will be even warmer and muggier Sunday when Yuhas said the high could reach 97, one degree warmer than the record temperature of 96.
On Memorial Day itself, Yuhas said to expect a high of around 95 with the chance of an isolated thunderstorm late.
Tuesday looks slightly cooler. The forecast calls for a high of around 90. But Yuhas said dew points could reach 70 both Monday and Tuesday.
Because of the warm weather, the National Weather Service is stressing the importance of heat safety.
That includes checking on the elderly, sick or those without air conditioning. And limiting strenuous outdoor activity, staying hydrated and finding shade when outside.
