10:16 pm Update: A weak cold front is stalling out now over Lake Erie. Not much cloud cover associated with the front right now. There could be one or two pop-up thunderstorms west of I-71 through the evening hours as warm humid air pushes up against the cold front. Temperatures today will hang in the lower 90s through 7pm and then slowly fall through the 80s after. Storms currently over Southern Ohio are trying to spread a few hihg clouds into our area. Mostly clear skies should adequately describe any cloud cover descriptions tonight. Lows will sink to near 70 by dawn Saturday, with mild and muggy conditions all night long.
With the stalled out front just to our north, Saturday's temperatures will stay steamy. Highs will climb back into the lower 90s in most spots with mainly sunny skies. Once again, a few pop up thunderstorms may interrupt your outdoor activities during the afternoon and evening. But, most of you will not see any rain.
A cold front slides east through Ohio on Sunday. Thunderstorms are forecast to arrive in Northern Ohio as early as Sunday morning ahead of the front. Current forecast suggest most of the storm activity will be south of us by mid afternoon. This will have to be monitored, just in case the front does slow down a little bit. Any thunderstorm that affects us Sunday could produce some heavy rain, large hail and gusty winds. Highs will be cooler thanks to the front moving by...middle 80s.
8:00 pm Update: Skies are sunny now. Temperatures are in the 80s area wide. One lonely storm has developed near Marion (Marion Co.). An isolated rain shower is over Carroll County now.
5:59 p.m Update: Temperatures are holding in the lower 90s after reaching 95º today for a high. Not quite the record but only 2º shy, still felt hot today. We are also dealing with the humidity, storms likely this weekend so today's air has felt quite juicy. Expect a warm evening with many areas staying in the 70s.
12:45 p.m. Update: Already hit 90º today! Looks like middle 90s are likely this afternoon as high pressure stays in control and sunshine bears down on us. Humidity is on the increase also so be sure to drink plenty of water during outdoor activities.
10:00 a.m. Update: Temperatures have already climbed to 84 degrees in Cleveland. We'll hit the low 90s this afternoon, making it the 22nd day of 90+ heat in Northeast Ohio this season.
A few thunderstorms are passing through Central Michigan this morning along a slow-moving cold front. The front will eventually make it to Northeast Ohio Sunday. Until then, expect toasty weather!
Temperatures will soar to the upper 80s by noon and hit 93 degrees later today. Southern counties could hit the mid-90s.
Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies are in the forecast overnight with lows near 70 degrees.
We're in for another hot day Saturday as highs soar to the low 90s. A few showers and thunderstorms will develop Saturday afternoon and evening.
The best chance of rain this weekend arrives Sunday afternoon along a cold front. Some of the storms may be strong to severe, so check back this weekend for updates.
Behind the front, temperatures fall to the low-to-mid 80s next week. Perfect for the Cuyahoga, Erie, Ashtabula, Holmes and Richland County Fairs!
