TOLEDO, Ohio — It will be a fantastic finish to Memorial Day on Monday.
Clear skies and dry very comfortable weather will be expected Monday evening and overnight into Tuesday. Lows Monday night will briefly dip back into the upper 50s.
Sunshine, dry and very warm weather will return Tuesday. The summer-feeling heat will build into the afternoon Tuesday with our first run toward 90 degrees this season.
Very hot and dry weather will persist all week with highs near 90 degrees and mostly sunny skies into early June.
This week will likely bring the first widespread heat wave of the summer season. Expect mostly sunny skies all week and likely into the weekend.
The hot and dry weather will rapidly increase the very dry conditions, possibly leading to a "flash drought" developing into early June.
The intense heat will break slightly into the weekend with highs in the 80s.
The outlook for any rain in the foreseeable future remains slim to none.
