Memorial Day Weekend Off To A Great Start, But Will It Last?

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Got outdoor plans for the holiday weekend? Better get them in on Saturday.

The weekend will be all over the place, and some of those places aren't good.

Whatever the weather bring, expect to see plenty of extra police officers on the roads. Governor Cuomo says state and local authorities will ramp up patrols to fight drunk, impaired, and reckless drivers all the way through Monday. There have already been ten arrests on Long Island.

And just in case you were wondering when to avoid the roads, AAA says Friday was the worst, but early afternoon will be pretty bad right through Tuesday.

And then there's Alberto. The first storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is moving toward the Gulf Coast.

Stay with 1010 WINS all weekend for the latest AccuWeather forecast and traffic and transit on the ones, especially for the Monday rush home.
