CLEVELAND -- The heat returned to Cleveland Tuesday as temperatures rose to a record-breaking 97 degrees--nothing new to Northeast Ohioans who have seen plenty of above average temperatures this spring and summer. 

Many people flocked to Edgewater Park in Cleveland to cool off in Lake Erie where water temperatures were in the 70's Tuesday, but not everybody could be in the water staying cool. Some had to work in the elements and if you thought it was hot on the ground, the roof was even hotter.

A construction crew was installing a new roof where temperatures were close to 120 degrees. 

Temperatures are expected to remain warm this week, but not quite as warm as we saw on Tuesday.  This weekend, the temperature is expected to rise again with highs near 90 degrees. 

Remember to check on the elderly and limit your time in the heat if you have to be outside.
