Many people see Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start to summer, and according to AccuWeather.com, this year's temperatures are really going to feel like it.
A heat wave is expected for the Midwest and East over the holiday weekend, which means families will be facing high humidity and temperatures close to 100 degrees in some areas as they celebrate.
Meteorologists also warn that the heat could generate thunderstorms later in the weekend.
For those headed out in the sun for some Memorial Day fun, be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Also, try to take breaks from the sun.
Heat can also cause mechanical problems, so make sure to check the car before hitting the road.
