Cleveland will have calmer skies with plenty of sunshine through Thursday, before the threat of storms returns Friday.

Temperatures will approach 90 F on Friday. The thunderstorm threat is expected to last throughout the afternoon and into the evening hours.

By the weekend, it will become much cooler as temperatures will struggle to get out of the 60s on Saturday. There will be a chance for a shower or thunderstorm Saturday morning, before clouds break for sun later in the day.

It will become slightly warmer on Sunday as highs move back into the 70s, with plenty of sunshine.

Fans heading to Progressive Field to catch the Cleveland Indians take on the Detroit Tigers through Thursday, or the Chicago White Sox through the weekend, will see mostly favorable conditions for a baseball game.
