Meteorological summer begins in just eight days, but northern Ohio is about to get a jump start into summer temperatures starting Wednesday.
Thanks to a pattern shift in the jet stream with warm air rising from the south into Northeast Ohio, we are heading into a seven-day stretch with daytime highs that will boost us back into the 80s. May has registered at a few degrees below average, but the month looks like it will finish with a strong comeback.
It has been almost two seasons since we've seen seven consecutive days in the 80s. The last time was in August 2015!
As the summer feel sets in midweek, we will still have to contend with rain and a few scattered storms. Nothing on the severe side, but it would have been nice to bask in the 80s under sunny skies.
Enjoy a full-on summer pattern during the dwindling days of spring!
