FORECAST: Bright sun, hot temps and gusty winds

Posted at 5:54 AM, Sep 07, 2021

CLEVELAND — Looking like summer still after Labor Day. Temps soaring QUICKLY into the mid-80s after a crisp start. Going from 50s to 80s today... then stuck in the 70s the rest of the week. That's all after tonight's cold front. Plan on thunderstorms after sunset.

They should be fading overnight as they roll in. Still can't rule out some downpours and gusty winds along with occasional lightning. The best shot for strong storms will be early Wednesday as the front starts to push east and out of Ohio. Plan on a better chance of downpours and strong winds during the Wednesday morning drive. Those storms slide out by midday with cooler, more comfortable air settling in after.

Mornings in the 50s and afternoons in the 70s the rest of the work week!
