Record High Temperatures Expected Across Southeast Through Weekend +/- 100F In Multiple States



Unseasonable temperatures nearing 100 degrees are expected to blast the southeast United States this Memorial Day weekend, as millions of Americans scramble for shade or indoor air conditioning.

Cities such as Jacksonville and Tampa, Florida, Nashville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, are expected to roast in record heat during the unofficial kickoff of summer, according to the National Weather Service.

Residents of the Sunshine State's largest city, Jacksonville, could be dealing with 99-degree weather on Monday, threatening the all-time May 27 record of 98 degrees set in 1989. The high temperature is expected to be about 97 on Saturday and Sunday.

It's the same story on Florida's west coast with temperatures expected to reach 97 degrees Monday, topping the record, also set in 1989.

5. Same here in Northern California.

We are in the high sixties with clouds. Some more rain expected. 100 degrees for the end of May -wow. I have a sister in South Carolina. Definitely not visiting her for awhile.

6. Rising temperatures, Conservatives, and climate change

I have decided that Conservatives won’t acknowledge climate change until alligators are lounging on the grounds of the Kentucky Statehouse, and probably not even then.

7. Nah. They'd just say "Gaw-duh is-a TESTING me!" . . .

And go back to cutting taxes, defunding public education and outlawing contraceptives.
