Warm, humid conditions will prevail over northern Ohio through Labor Day. However, cooler temperatures with lower humidities will come calling for the remainder of the week.

High temperatures will be in the mid-70s most days with nighttime lows in the 60s.

While the extended holiday weekend started on a dry note, the weather is destined to turn more unsettled for Labor Day in Cleveland. It will still have its rain-free intervals, but the heaviest thunderstorms will drop blinding and potentially flooding downpours.

People spending time outdoors are urged to keep an eye out for rapidly changing weather conditions and to seek shelter as storms approach.

Folks heading home from their Labor Day or late-summer ventures could encounter delays at the airport and interstate highways Monday.

It will not be until a cool front swings through Monday evening that humidity levels will be shaved and the risk of showers and thunderstorms will diminish.
