Cooler weather will set up over Cleveland through midweek following a mild start to the week.

Highs will be kept in the 40s Wednesday with overnight lows dipping down into the 30s, possibly dipping below the freezing mark.

Folks heading out to the ballpark might want to take a coat with them as the Cleveland Indians continue their home stand against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Dry conditions will accompany the cooler weather with Wednesday featuring partial sunshine and a breeze off Lake Erie.

This chill is not expected to stick around for long, however.

By Thursday, warmer air is forecast to return to the Cleveland area and continue through the rest of the week.

Showers will make an appearance on Friday as a cold front moves through the region. A few rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out either as the front rolls through.

A cooler weekend is in store for Cleveland in the wake of this front with temperatures both days struggling to reach the 50-degree mark.

A normal high for this time of year is 62 degrees.
