Much of the southern half of the lower peninsula will experience record heat this Memorial day. Those observing in these portions of the mitten state can expect temperatures in the mid 90's with heat indices in the low 100's, with multiple cities forecast to break record highs.

To avoid heat related issues: hydrate, wear light colored loose fitting clothing, avoid strenuous outdoor activity during peak afternoon heat, make sure children and animals are not left outdoors or in non-running vehicles.
