Another “warmest of the year” event occurred Wednesday when Cleveland saw 86°F for the maximum, the highest temperature for Cleveland since August 19 of last year. In addition, that was the warmest temperature recorded anywhere (officially) in Ohio on Wednesday afternoon.
Temperatures will remain consistent today into the weekend with a little more moisture in the air. Dew points have started to rise in the last day and will soon be in the somewhat humid category. That should be enough moisture to trigger random to scattered heat-of-the-day thunderstorms beginning Thursday afternoon.
