CLEVELAND — Have a Rain Plan for your Labor Day Weekend Activities!

Tonight we stay warm & dry with low temperatures hanging in the 60s. Scattered clouds will slide across the area through the night.

More heat and some humidity return for Saturday. We should be able to stay dry until a cold front approaches Saturday late afternoon and evening. Isolated thundershowers are possible in a few spots, especially along any lake breeze that forms east of Cleveland. Highs will climb into the middle and upper 80s.

More widespread unsettled weather moves in for Sunday. Expect scattered rain showers and some rumbles of thunder on and off during the day.
