CLEVELAND - Fall in Ohio can be summed up in a few phrases. First, high school football. Second, leaves changing. And third, roller coaster weather.
We'll see that roller coaster Sunday through Tuesday, when temperatures nearing 70 fall into the 30s. For Sunday, Veterans Day, we'll likely see sunshine and even a few records falling. Let's break it down by taking a look at the record highs for Sunday across northern Ohio:
TOLEDO: 71 IN 1927
FINDLAY: 72 IN 1964
MANSFIELD: 70 IN 1927
CLEVELAND: 73 IN 1915
AKRON/CANTON: 72 IN 1915
YOUNGSTOWN: 70 IN 1939
ERIE: 73 IN 1915
I think Toledo, Findlay and Akron/Canton have the best shots at breaking records, but you can't count out everyone if we get enough sunshine and the southerly winds pick up. We could easily see middle 70s through Sunday afternoon.
All our warm fun will come crashing down Monday afternoon with a cold front. That front will drop highs Tuesday into the upper 30s. Enjoy the warmth, but be ready with those heavier coats Tuesday.
