Warmth will continue around Cleveland through the Labor Day weekend, while excessive heat is bottled up to the west, thanks to occasional heavy storms.

Rounds of thunderstorms will occur on the northern and eastern fringe of excessive heat anchored over the Central states.

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are in the forecast through Wednesday. Any storm can become locally severe with gusty winds and drenching downpours.

The storms can cause sporadic travel disruptions and isolated power outages. Folks outdoors, and especially boaters, will want to keep an eye out for rapidly changing weather conditions.

The high temperature in Cleveland hit 87 degrees on Monday. Due to storms in the area Tuesday, temperatures reached 82 degrees.

Temperatures will continue to average above normal through the Labor Day weekend. Additional sporadic storms are also likely to develop over the weekend.

Normal temperatures range from a low in the lower 60s to a high near 80 degrees during late August.
