Hot weather in the Baltimore area should drive many to Ocean City this weekend, where cooler weather and sunshine should greet them.
The National Weather Service is forecasting highs in the upper 70s with partly cloudy skies and virtually no chance of rain through the Memorial Day weekend. It may not sound too hot, but with a bright sun and high humidity, it should make for nice early-season beach days.
The ocean water temperature is running about 66 degrees. Waves are about 2-3 feet high, and the risk of rip currents is low, according to the weather service's surf forecast.
