Today in 2015: Record snow, Today in 2016: Record heat

Snow falls on Oct. 17, 2015

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - What a difference a year makes!

One year ago, there were snow flurries flying in northeast Ohio.

The high temperature on Oct. 17, 2015 was just 46 degrees and the low temperature was 39 degrees. We accumulated 0.1 inch of snowfall at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport, making that the record highest amount of snowfall for Oct. 17.

THIS, however, is what we are forecasting for Monday, just one year later.

We may tie or break record highs in several locations Monday. Throw on your summer finery and enjoy this because, as you know, it's rare. Today's record high of 82 degrees was set back in 1953.

We're going to do this all over again Tuesday, too. The record high for Tuesday is 84 degrees (1950) and that is exactly what we are forecasting for tomorrow.

If you're longing for a taste of fall, don't worry. Cooler, more seasonable air will arrive by the end of the week.

By the weekend, we'll be in the 50s.
