PADUCAH, Ky. -- Record or near record heat is expected this holiday weekend.

Southeast Missouri residents should be prepared for a Hot Memorial Day weekend with near record high temperatures in the mid 90s or even upper 90s in some locations,, according to the National Weather Service.

"Due to a lack of high surface moisture, Heat Index Values should stay close to the actual air temperatures, generally in the mid to upper 90s," the Weather Service reported.
