CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - We are tracking a 19 First Alert Weather Day through Thursday for Northeast Ohio due to poor air quality.

Air quality levels will remain in the unhealthy category through tonight and are expected to be in a similar category tomorrow.

Wildfire smoke from fires in Canada will continue to remain an impact for us until we get a more significant pattern shift this weekend.

We expect a thicker concentration of the smoke to impact Northeast Ohio Thursday.

Everyone should try to limit time outdoors as much as possible, but especially those with sensitive respiratory issues.

We may start to see slight improvements to the haze by the weekend.

Cooler temperatures will carry us through the remainder of the work week.

Overnight lows through Thursday morning will return to the upper 40s.

Daytime highs will be back into the middle and upper 60s through Friday.

Latest timing on the rain looks to hold off until Sunday night leaving us with a dry, mild weekend.

Rain will linger through Monday and could provide folks with up to 1″ of rain in spots.
