CLEVELAND — Here comes the heat. More heat... and more humidity. Today we're back near 87º in Cleveland but the next few days we're pushing 90º. Most of us in the lower 90s starting Tuesday and lasting through midweek. Heat index readings will be well above that. Pushing 100º Tuesday and Wednesday so be careful out in the heat!

Along with the heat & humidity will come a few storms but the chances are low, for now. Plan on 1 or 2 today and Tuesday with a few more Wednesday-Friday.

Long range models are hinting at some relief next week.

We'll keep a close eye on it!


  • Hot & humid today
  • Even hotter Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Slim rain chance next couple days
  • Better shot at rain by Wednesday


Monday: Slim storm chance. Hot & humid.| High: 87º

Tuesday: Heat builds. More humid too. Slim storm chance.| High: 91º

Wednesday: Heat builds. More humid too. Spotty PM storms.| High: 92º
