CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - What an absolutely beautiful day out there!

We’ve got one more of these on the docket for tomorrow.

Expect mostly sunny skies for most of the day Friday.

A few more clouds will stream in through the afternoon but these clouds will not produce rain; we’ll get through the day dry.

Highs will top out in the upper 70s on Friday afternoon.

A lake breeze will kick in during the second half of the day, cooling off lakeshore communities.

As new weather data has come in through the end of the work week, we’ve been able to make a few tweaks to the weekend forecast.

We are still expecting widely scattered showers and storms on Saturday afternoon, however, they won’t be as numerous as we initially thought.

Temperatures will warm into the mid 70s Saturday afternoon.

We are also still anticipating the arrival of a cold front on Sunday, but now, it appears that the front will arrive later than earlier model runs indicated.

At this time, we expect Sunday’s rain and thunderstorm activity to hold off until mid-to-late afternoon.

This gives us an opportunity to increase Sunday’s temperature forecast!

Expect highs in the upper 70s Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, behind the front, temperatures will really tumble.

Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will only warm into the upper 40s.
