    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.

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A string of car break-insin one Toledo neighborhood has everyone on edge.

It's happening in theWillys Parkway area near Berdan.

Neighbors say thieves aregetting bolder with how they're breaking into cars.  Instead of hitting cars parked on the street,they're creeping closer to homes, and stealing from right under people's noses,sometimes even busting down doors to get in the garage.

Residents say cars arebeing broken into repeatedly in this neighborhood.  Kyle Barney, who lives there, says his housewas the most recent casualty.  A laptopwas stolen out of the backseat of his dad's care.

"(They) kicked into ourgarage to get in," Barney said.  "It'stroubling how much they think they can get away with now."

Barney is especiallytroubled by thieves, because this isn't the first time he's been a victim.

"My car's been broken intofive or six times," he says.

Barney's installedpadlocks and even motion detectors lights to keep the bad guys out, but admitsat the end of the day, there's not much else he can do.

"We'll just leave the carunlocked, they're still going to steal the stuff but at least we won't have topay to get new windows and all that stuff," he jokes.

Toledo Police say they'veincreased patrols in the area, and they've been on the lookout in unmarked carsfor any suspicious activity.
