Memorial Day weekend is upon us and we know some people are preparing to head to the beach to stretch their legs and have some fun in the sun with their family.
While the beach sounds like a great idea, you may want to think twice before finalizing plans.
Reason 1: The weather will be a little "iffy" this weekend. Rain chances are pretty low Friday and Saturday -- some areas could get a popup shower. But the real weather threat comes on Sunday and will more than likely last through Monday. Long story short, expect a possible washout for Memorial Day.
FUTURE FORECAST: Rain Memorial Day weekend could washout outdoor plans
Reason 2: CROWDS. Just like you're thinking about the beach so are hundreds of others, especially after weeks of staying at home to slow the spread of coronavirus.
Many are desperate for a change of scenery and a place to safely distance from others while enjoying time with their family.
So to help you make a sound decision on if going to the beach is a good idea, here's a look at some live cameras along the Gulf.
