(KSLA) - Happy Mother’s Day everyone! You’ll want to spoil your mothers with A/C this weekend with our warm and humid temperatures that may feel a bit more like early summer instead of late spring.

MOTHER’S DAY: the evening will stay fairly warm in the 80s and then eventually 70s. Overnight lows will fall into the low 70s as we begin the first day of the work week.

With this weather pattern we are in, it will be very persistent. A ridge of high pressure will move over the ArkLaTex and much of the eastern United States. It will be trapped there with a low pressure center on either side of the high pressure. So the western half of the US will see below average temperatures with a little more rain. Meanwhile we will have above average temperatures with no rain.

Monday and Tuesday will also be very hot with dry conditions. Temperatures will remain around record territory. So highs will be in the mid 90s. For reference, average high temperatures for early May is only the lower to mid 80s. So we are about 10-15 degrees or so above average.

When you factor in the humidity, it’ll feel much more like the mid to upper 90s during the afternoon hours. Monday afternoon will also be a very breezy day with southerly winds at around 10-15mph.

The middle of the week and into the end of it pretty much stays the same. Highs will continue to warm above average in the mid to upper 90s under very sunny skies. So far it looks like the pattern finally breaks this weekend with slight chances for rain.

Have a great work week!
