    This stay of unusually warm October weather has a countdown to cool. Highs will stay in the 70s and even reach to just shy of record 80s on Saturday before it all comes to a close. The end of the warmth begins late Sunday evening as showers sweep across the Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. This late weekend system will be just the start to a cooler pattern next week; that will bring our coolest temperatures of the season so far.

OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

More than 500 construction jobs, and about 25 permanent jobs, are coming to Oregon after the state approved a plan to build a power generating station there.

The Ohio Power Sitting Board approved an application to build the Oregon Clean Energy Center Wednesday. The center will generate 799 megawatts of electricity by burning natural gas.

The $860 million project, called the "Oregon Clean Energy Project," will be built on North Lallendorf Road in Oregon, will create 532 construction jobs and 25 full-time positions once completed.

Work could begin at Lallendorf and York roads by August, and should take about 20 months to complete.

The state says the facility will generate about $15.4 million in state and local tax revenue.

"It also brings a needed service to our city," said Oregon Mayor Michael Seferian. "We will have power on site for maybe future industrial projects, [like if] somebody comes down the pike and they are looking for a place to locate."
