CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - This time last week, bitterly cold Arctic air was moving into our area.

Today, we tied and/or broke record highs in Cleveland, Akron, and Youngstown.

[Record high temperatures set in Cleveland, Akron today]

Now, we wait for rain to arrive.

Your early-evening plans will feature spotty rain showers and very mild temperatures for this time of the year.

More numerous showers will move into the area by morning, making for a very wet and dreary start to the day.

Expect occasional showers through Saturday afternoon.

Despite the rain, Saturday will be another unseasonably warm day.

The 19 First Alert Weather Team is forecasting high temperatures in the low 50s on Saturday.

The rain will depart before the clock strikes midnight.

New Year’s Eve evening plans will feature dry skies and temperatures in the 40s.

That’s not too bad for this time of the year!

New Year’s Day, Sunday, will be quiet and dry, but there will be a little patchy fog around in the morning.

High temperatures will climb up to about 50 degrees Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures will remain above average through next Wednesday.

More seasonable temperatures will return for the end of next week.
