CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A sprawling area of high pressure will move east of Ohio, and as it does so, warm air will build in from the south.

High temperatures will remain in the 80s through the weekend.

You may have noticed the hazy or milky quality of the sky in recent days.

This is due to smoke from distant wildfires being lofted high into the air and carried into the Great Lakes and Midwest regions.

While the smoke is not impacting air quality at this time, it will linger through the weekend, creating occasional haze.

You may also notice redder sunrises and sunsets over the course of the next few days.

Should the smoke thicken, sunrises and sunsets will be less brilliant and more cloudy in nature.

With high pressure in control, we will remain dry through the weekend.

Our next disturbance will move in on Monday.

This feature will provide the focus for showers late Sunday night into Monday morning.

The rain will gradually taper off Monday afternoon.

Clouds and showers will keep us a little cooler on Monday.

Highs will top out in the mid to upper 70s.

We’ll return to the mid 80s by Wednesday afternoon.
