There wasn't much of a breeze in the air as flags swayed high in the sky outside of "The Club" fitness center in Brandon. To cool off many of you decided to take a swim.
"Just trying to beat the heat," said Brandon resident Ramon Risher.
"With a high of upper 90's I prefer not to be out here myself or with my son," said Jeff Hightower.
Hightower and his toddler Parker had the pool at The Club all to themselves for awhile. The dad said they decided to splash around before it got too hot.
"I think we're usually five to ten degrees cooler at this time," said Hightower.
On this Memorial Day temperatures could reach between 93 and 97 degrees. According to National Weather Service Senior Meteorologist Mike Edmonston, the warmth is hotter than average for this time of year.
"The high temperature or the average high runs in the middle to upper 80's between 86 to 88 degrees and we've been running in the low to mid 90's," said Edmonston.
Despite the warmer than normal temperatures, Edmonton said the heat has reached its peak for awhile.
"We're looking for a cold front to come through on Thursday so next weekend looks good," said Edmonston.
Until the cooler weather comes through, families are enjoying this Memorial Day one splash at a time.
