At least three record highs were broken on Monday in Ohio and Pennsylvania, including the cities of Cleveland and Erie.
Cleveland and Mansfield, Ohio along with Erie, Pennsylvania all reached 88° on Monday, all tying or breaking record highs for Monday, all under a big ridge of high pressure drawing up summer-like heat and humidity.
More record warmth is possible in this region for Tuesday and Wednesday, but a BIG cool down is on the way for the end of the week.
Enjoy the warmth while it lasts, at least if you're a summer-lover; by this time next week, temperatures will likely drop by 30 or more degrees by the weekend!
