10:15 pm Update: Outstanding weather for the rest of this week. High pressure currently over Pittsburgh will move slowly east over the next few days. Southerly breezes will allow for warmer temperatures thru the rest of this week. With the high still close to us, rain should hold off until Friday night or Saturday.
Expect mainly clear skies tonight across the entire area. Low temperatures tonight will fall back into the lower and middle 50s.
Wednesday will also be dry and sunny. With high pressure shifting to the east coast, southerly breezes will transport 80 degree weather back into the area during the afternoon. I expect high temperatures to climb up to between 80 & 85 degrees.
Thursday will be sunny and dry again with highs in the low to middle 80s. Clouds will increase on Friday ahead of a cold front. Isolated showers are possible during the evening hours. High temperatures will reach up to near 80 degrees.
We're seeing temps in the low 70s early this afternoon, and with winds turning SW - we'll see those readings rise even more into the upper 70s by later in the day. Lows tonight will not be as cool.
High pressure over Ohio will provide full sunshine today. Temperatures will warm to low 70s by noon and hit 76 degrees by 4 p.m. Temperatures will cool quickly this evening under clear skies. If you'll be outside for the Wayne County Fair, Restaurant Week in Akron or the Akron Aeros game, expect temperatures in the upper 60s by 7 p.m.
Overnight, low temperatures will be cool, in the low-to-mid 50s.
High pressure will drift toward the East Coast Wednesday, warming temperatures to the low 80s. Warmer, southerly winds will keep temperatures around 80 degrees through Friday.
An approaching cold front will trigger a slight chance of showers late Friday, but a better chance arrives Saturday. I can't rule out a few showers behind the front Sunday. Weekend temperatures will drop to the 70s.
