CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Talk about a beautiful stretch of weather.

The last time it rained was Saturday, May 7th; Hopkins recorded just a trace of rain that morning.

With no rain expected until this Saturday, that means we’re experiencing a six-day stretch of completely dry weather.

The last time Hopkins reported no precipitation for six or more days was early-November, 2021.

Temperatures will soar into the upper 70s and lower 80s through the end of the work week.

Each afternoon, we will have the potential for the lake breeze to kick in, which can often drop temperatures along the lakeshore by 10 degrees or so.

Other than a little haze high in the sky, we should be mostly sunny through Friday.

Rain will return to the forecast this weekend.

We’re expecting widely scattered late-day thunderstorms on Saturday.

A few more scattered showers and storms will drift across our area on Sunday, especially later in the day.

At this time, the beginning of next week appears to be dry, but it will be a bit cooler.

Temperatures will top out around 70 degrees next Monday and Tuesday.
