A brisk southwesterly flow sent temperatures soaring into the mid-80s this weekend, under partly cloudy skies. High pressure along the Mid-Atlantic Coast will slowly shift east, as a frontal system approaches the state tonight. Rain reaching the northwest continues to fizzle in drier air.

A storm system will cross the northern Great Lakes Monday. Showers and storms will redevelop ahead of a trailing cold front midday. A few stronger cells could produce gusty winds and brief heavy rain, especially along and east of I-71 during the afternoon, when temperatures will range from 75-80 degrees. 

Unseasonably chilly weather will return beginning on Tuesday, as Canadian high pressure drifts east, creating a cool northwesterly flow. The weather will be dry until the weekend. Frost is even possible Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and few flurries could fly in northeast Ohio midweek.
