    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.

LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A new report shows foreclosures continue to decline in Lucas County.

 Information from the Clerk of Courts' office shows through August of this year, there were 1,352 foreclosure filings. That compares to 1,985 during the same time period last year. That's a 32 percent decrease.

Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak has been working closely with the local foreclosure prevention task force. She says when comparing to 2009, when the local economy bottomed out, unemployment going down and efforts to keep people in their homes went up, and she credits that for this trend.

"There's a magistrate in Lucas County Common Pleas Court," she said. "The judges have done a terrific job making sure the magistrate doesn't do a foreclosure unless it's the last and final straw. We continue to invite people to use the resources through the fair housing center."

In 2009, there were 4,160 foreclosures in Lucas County. At the current pace, this year's total would come in at around 1,800.
