It’s going to be a hotter than usual Memorial Day weekend.
The National Weather Service in Paducah is expecting near record high temperatures in the mid 90’s, with upper 90’s possible in some locations.
Officials encourage residents to follow the basic rules of heat safety to keep from becoming overheated.
Residents are urged to drink plenty of water, avoid strenuous activity and wear light colored and light weight clothing while outside and to also make sure pets have plenty of fresh water and shade.
Officials say the last time it was this warm was back in the early part of September.
