CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A hazy sky still greets us outside this afternoon.

Air Quality Advisories remain in effect for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit counties until midnight.

Those with sensitive respiratory concerns should continue to limit time outdoors due to elevated air quality levels from Canadian wildfire smoke.

We will still have some haze around this evening, but conditions will be improving.

Temperatures tonight drop into the lower 50s.

Saturday will bring plenty of sunshine to the area with temperatures climbing into the lower 80s by the afternoon.

Clouds build Saturday night as our next cold front approaches Northeast Ohio from the west Sunday.

This will generate spotty showers Sunday morning into the afternoon.

Highs Sunday will be mild once again with temperatures into the upper 70s.

More widespread rain arrives Sunday night into Monday along with the cooler temperatures next week.

We will keep a small, daily rain chance through Thursday with cooler than average temperatures expected for much of the week.
