9:00 pm Update: Thanks to all who joined me to Chat about how Isaac will impact your outdoor activities this weekend. We will do it again Saturday morning from 8 to 10am and from 6 to 8pm!
A weak cold front is sliding south into the region now. Really nothing to worry about with the front. Just a wind shift to the west and slightly cooler temperatures for the weekend. Evening temperatures for your Friday Night Football Games will hang in the 80s through 9pm. Low temperatures tonight will fall back into the middle and upper 60s.
Isaac's rain may affect your Saturday afternoon. A band of thundershowers is expected to form across the US Rt 224 and US Rt 30 corridors by mid to late afternoon Saturday. That means folks in Mansfield, Ashland, Wooster, Canton, Dover, New Phily, & Coshocton need to keep an eye out for thunder by 2 or 3 pm. Farther north, drier air in place should keep things dry!

12:04 p.m. Update: Temperatures are already in the middle 80s across northeast Ohio. Thanks to a light south wind and plenty of sunshine, we will have nothing stopping us from soaring into the 90s. Expect lower 90s for highs today.
90s are back in the forecast for the 27th time this year, but it won't be uncomfortably humid. Expect sunny skies from sunrise to sunset with breezy conditions.
High pressure moves southeast today, allowing a weak cold front to cross the Great Lakes. The front will sag into Northeast Ohio early Saturday morning. Look for partly cloudy skies overnight with lows in the upper 60s.
Saturday will be partly cloudy and cooler. Highs will only hit the low-to-mid 80s. The remnants of Isaac will slide through southern Ohio Sunday and Monday, leaving us with only a slight chance of rain.
The best chance of rain this weekend comes from a secondary cold front, which will arrive Monday into Tuesday. As of the latest computer models, the best chance of rain is Monday night through Tuesday morning. Most of the weekend will be dry!
Now, this forecast could easily change, so stay in touch with us this weekend. Check newsnet5.com often for updates and don't forget our mobile apps as well as Facebook and Twitter. Have a great Labor Day weekend!
