Hot temperatures will return on this Memorial Day. Expect highs for most in the upper 90’s. The Western and Northern Big Country will see some triple digit heat. The forecast will stay dry with gusty south winds. A dry line will move into the Western Big Country. As result of the dry air and the gusty winds, fire weather will be elevated in those areas.

South winds will stay gusty tonight, as temperatures fall into the middle 70’s. It will be mostly clear.
