Likelihood of showers, however highs might attain 70s on a number of days: Cleveland, Akron climate forecast


CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Auto Snowbrush had to be brought out one last time (hopefully) last week, but Northeast Ohioans can look forward to several days in the low 70s of this week.

It’s not all good news, however. An umbrella and rain boots are handy as the chance of rain showers is widespread.

On Monday, the day of the Cleveland Indians’ home opening game, the forecast predicts a slight chance of rain between 2-3 o’clock. The first pitch is set to 4:10 p.m. In mostly cloudy conditions, the high is 66 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. The low is forecast at 49 and there is a possibility of showers and thunderstorms.

Tuesday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 70. The day is one of two periods this week when showers are not included in the forecast. After 9 p.m. there is a slight chance of rain, the low is 54.

By the middle of the week, Wednesday is expected to be partly sunny with highs close to 72. A slight probability of rain before 9am is in the forecast, but Wednesday evening is expected to be mostly cloudy with lows at 56am.

Showers are likely during the day and night on Thursday, but a high of nearly 73 degrees – the highest temperature forecast for this week – is expected. The low will be 54 in mostly cloudy conditions.

A chance of showers is forecast for the day and night of Friday, with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the lower 50s.
