This week’s heat wave is set to stick around for Memorial Day weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures will remain in the low 80s Thursday, according to meteorologist Carlie Buccola. That’s far above normal for this time of year, she said.
“We’re definitely 10 to 15 degrees above,” Ms. Buccola said.
Friday through Sunday will be slightly cooler, but still warmer than usual, with temperatures in the upper 70s. Meteorologists are tracking some storms that may move through the area, but it appears likely they won’t hit the East End, she said.
“It really looks like everything will be north and west of the city,” she said. “Maybe a scattered shower but it looks like it’ll be a nice day.”
Skies will remain clear through Sunday, when the forecast calls for partly cloudy conditions leading into a mostly cloudy but still warm Memorial Day, forecasts show.
