Here's a look at how the holiday weekend forecast is shaping up.

Now that you know the science behind the heat wave, go jump in a pool and cool off!

Memorial Day Weekend is underway, and so is our warm-up. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for Friday evening through Saturday morning for all of northern Illinois, Lake County, Indiana, and parts of southern Wisconsin and eastern Iowa.

The end of the work week features seasonable temperatures and a chance for a couple of showers Thursday morning and again late Thursday into early Friday.

A frontal system passing offshore should move along quickly enough to give us a nice day.

By Monday, temps will climb a few more degrees, possibly into the mid-70s.

Then of course it is a different court, and especially is a little bit different looking from behind the royal (officials') box. The southpaw became the first player in the Open era, male or female, to win the same Grand Slam tournament 11 times .

New records could be set for high temperatures in several dozen cities, from Louisiana to Virginia, setting the stage for potentially deadly conditions.

Temperatures were expected to stay below normal with Saturday's high climbing to just around 60 degrees.

Friday: Partly sunny, may shower early.

Showers and storms will be around the first half of next week with high temperatures from the upper 70s to mid 80s. Partly cloudy skies and southerly winds will help us to warm up even more, with highs climbing into the middle and upper 80s. That would be the one change that could occur to this forecast. But if the front slows down a little bit, the clouds and showers could linger Sunday morning.

A chance for showers and spotty storms will exist across the western Pennsylvania region from 12 about 10 p.m.
