CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The tropical levels of humidity will linger across Northeast Ohio through the weekend.

As temperatures heat up Sunday, it will act as fuel for scattered showers and storms.

Given how muggy it is outside, these showers will be efficient rain producers in a short amount of time.

This does not mean Sunday will be a washout. Activity will continue to remain scattered with periods of dry time expected as well.

Highs are climbing into the upper 80s and lower 90s Sunday afternoon with heat index values into the middle and upper 90s to lower 100s.

The pattern that continues to fuel this daily opportunity for rain and muggy conditions will be clearing out Monday night into Tuesday.

A front will pass through sparking additional rain chances early in the week before dropping the humidity through the middle and end of the week.

Temperatures will trend from the middle 80s Monday to the upper 70s Tuesday.

Expect cooler and drier conditions through the end of the work week.
