CLEVELAND — It's race weekend in Cleveland with Saturday's 5K and 8K races and the Cleveland Marathon on Sunday. Here's what to expect weather-wise.

On Saturday, runners can expect cool temps in the mid-50s and few showers, but not too much rain, and certainly not a washout. By noon, temps will hit 70 degrees and it will dry out a bit before reaching nearly 80 degrees come mid-afternoon.

Marathon participants should remember to drink plenty of water Sunday with the rising heat and humidity. It will be in the 60s when the race kicks off at 7 a.m. and warm up a bit to the low 70s by 10 a.m. Things heat up through the afternoon, with temps reaching nearly 80 degrees for the second day in a row.
