Weather outlook is excellent for Memorial Day

Sunny skies and dry heat are expected this morning and afternoon for what forecasters predict will be a beautiful Memorial Day around Tampa Bay.

Temperatures in the mid to low 80s will persist along the shore with comfortably low humidity levels, said Josh Linker, a meteorologist for Bay News 9. He said some areas might benefit from a sea breeze as well.

Business managers near the beaches expect to be busy with the pleasant weather — some have prepared for holiday crowds numbering in the thousands.

"The weather's actually going to be great to be outdoors," Linker said. "Just be sure that if you're going to be outdoors for an extended period of time to drink some extra water and bring some sunscreen."
