FORECAST: Mild night ahead with more storms on Thursday

Posted at 5:40 AM, Jul 05, 2023

CLEVELAND — We officially had our first 90 degree day in Cleveland on Wednesday! It may be hard to believe, but June was the first time in almost 20 years we DIDN'T hit 90º.

Tomorrow will still be very warm, but with increasing clouds and rain chances, plan for highs in the 80s. A cold front will slide through the area on Thursday bringing a better shot for thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. Severe weather potential is limited, but a few storms could get briefly strong with isolated damaging winds. Most storms will just bring heavy rain and lightning. Remember though, any storm can be dangerous with lightning! When thunder roars, get indoors.

Best chance for showers on Friday will be during the first half of the day, but the rain chances hang around into the weekend. Plus, Thursday's cold front will drop temperatures into the upper 70s and low 80s by Friday and into linger through Sunday.

What To Expect:

  • Mild & quiet night
  • Increasing clouds on Thursday
  • Seasonable temperatures
  • More rain & Storms on Thursday
  • Cooler by Friday
