    Temperatures will be on the rise as humidity grips the Cleveland area over the next several days.

    The heating trend will ramp up into early next week. Temperatures will increase to the mid-80s by midweek.

    Overnight temperatures will remain more consistent than the increasing daytime highs. Overnight lows are expected to rest in the mid-60s.

    Sunshine will cover the skies during the day with times of clouds moving in. Night skies will be mostly clear. There is a threat of thunderstorms Monday night.

    The humidity will linger into the evening as well.

    With the increased humidity, AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures are expected to be two to four degrees higher than the recorded temperature.

    For fans heading to Progressive Field to catch part of the Indians' three-game home stand against the Houston Astros, conditions will be dry but sticky.

    Those with outdoor activities planned should take proper precautions and stay hydrated throughout the day as well as use sunscreen regularly.

    Looking ahead, the heat will subside after midweek as temperatures could fall back into the 70s before next weekend.
