Weekend road trip forecast: 7 cities within driving distance of Cleveland
Taking a road trip this weekend? Take a look at the weekend forecast for 7 cities within driving distance from Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio - This weekend across the board it's looking like strong weather condition swings. How so? Most areas will see strong, widespread thunderstorms and hot temperatures for Saturday, but as the low pressure system and cold front pair push east they will leave behind sunny skies and much cooler temperatures for Sunday. As the cold front moves west to east (Saturday - Sunday) it will cause thunderstorms ahead of it where's there's plenty of moisture and will leave behind dry, sunny skies with cooler temperatures.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Model forecast of temperatures from Saturday morning to Sunday night.Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Take a look at forecasts you might be road-tripping to. Cincinnati Cincinnati is going to see some strong weather changes this weekend. Saturday you can expect heavy rainfall nearly all day, with humidity, wind and temperatures reaching the low 80s. Sunday? Sunny skies, no rain and temperatures reaching the mid 70s. Columbus Columbus is following the same trend as Cincinnati this weekend: rain and strong winds on Saturday and clear by Sunday. Saturday's high temperature will hit the mid 80s while Sunday will cool down a bit, only reaching the mid 70s. Pittsburgh As the low pressure and cold front causing all of this rain pushes east, it will hit Pittsburgh Saturday night and may linger into Sunday morning. So, Saturday has only a 50 percent chance of rain and Sunday that rain may stick through leading to a 20 percent chance of rain for that day. Saturday is going to be stifling reaching 90 degrees, but Sunday will cool down to the mid 70s after the cold front passes. Chicago Chicago could follow the trend as the areas above, but rain chances are much more slight on Saturday, only 40 percent because of less coverage of the storms. But you can still expect some strong winds. Sunday, they drop to less than 10 percent. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s both days. Louisville Louisville is also going to be hit with the low pressure and cold front couplet. This will lead to an 80 percent chance of rain for Saturday and only 10 percent for Sunday since they will be pushed east by then. Saturday will heat up to the mid 80s while Sunday temperatures will be 80 degrees. Washington D.C. Washing D.C. is just far enough east so that the low pressure system and cold front will be partially dissipated and dry air will take over preventing thunderstorm formation. This means sunny skies this weekend with temperatures in the mid 90s Saturday dropping to the mid 80s for Sunday. Toronto It's going to be two opposite weather days this weekend in Toronto. Saturday is looking full of rain, humidity,and cool temperatures reaching 75 degrees. Sunday is going to be completely different with less than 10 percent chance of rain, sunny skies and temperatures reaching 72 degrees. The How A low-pressure system with a trailing cold front this weekend will push west to east, creating rain chances as the system moves through each of these areas. Low pressure and cold fronts create the perfect environment for thunderstorms to develop because they cause rising motion in the atmosphere. As air rises it becomes unstable as it cools to its dew point forming condensation and rain. Heavy moisture near the low pressure will help rain showers strengthen.

Cleveland adds more schools to its heat closings list
Heat is shutting down a growing number of Cleveland school district schools today for the second straight day. CLEVELAND, Ohio - High temperatures today will keep at least 23 Cleveland schools from opening, the district announced early this morning, with the total continuing to increase. These closings come a day after the district closed 10 schools mid-day because of heat. The schools closed so far are: Bard High School Early College, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Eliot, Charles Mooney, Collinwood High School, Facing History New Tech High School, Garrett Morgan, Iowa-Maple, Louis Agassiz, McKinley, Michael R White, New Tech West High School, Newton D. Baker, O H Perry, Patrick Henry, Sunbeam, Tremont Montessori, Valley View Boys Leadership Academy, Walton, Whitney Young, Wilbur Wright, William Cullen Bryant and Willow. District spokesperson Roseann Canfora said temperatures in the schools were already high at 4 a.m., prompting the first 20 closures. More schools were added to the list as time went on. "The decision was made based upon samplings of INTERNAL temperatures taken between 4:00 and 4:30 am after building windows had been opened and fans running," she said. "Temperatures inside of several buildings were already in the high 80s." The National Weather Service urges extreme caution when the heat index - a combination of temperature and humidity - rises over 90.  Canfora said the early temperatures and humidity already put schools in the extreme caution stage. As temperatures rise, the schools would likely have a heat index the Weather Service classifies as dangerous. Click here for other schools in Northeast Ohio closed today because of heat. As of a year ago, the district had 20 schools that did not have air conditioning. At the time, Students of at least seven of those schools were scheduled to have air conditioning by the time the district's school construction project is finished in 2019, but 13 schools were still in limbo and may be left out. The buildings on the far left that are scheduled to be replaced will all have air conditioning. An additional school, Charles Eliot elementary, will go into the new Whitney Young schools. 20 Non air conditioned buildings in the district Buildings scheduled to be replaced under Issue 4 Buildings that may be replaced or renovated under Issue 4 Schools to be relocated to other buildings Schools to be refreshed Iowa Maple (Segment 9) Michael R White (By 2019) McKinley to be relocated into Wilbur Wright Ben Franklin Newton D Baker (By 2018) Tremont Montessori (By 2019) Charles Eliot to relocate to new K-8 building on Whitney Young site Brooklawn (has partial a/c) OH Perry (By 2017)     Carl Shuler (Bard) Sunbeam (By 2017)     Charles Mooney (has partial a/c) Valley View (By 2018)     Collinwood Whitney Young (By 2017)     Garrett Morgan       Louis Agassiz       Wilbur Wright       William C Bryant       Willow

Up-and-down weather confuses insects: Here's how to deal with them
Some insects enter dormancy during the winter, but you might see them walking around when temperatures swing. Here's how to deal with the bugs. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- This winter has been a roller coaster of weather, and the up-and-down temperatures are messing with the dormancy habits of bugs. Some spend the cold season either in the nooks and crannies of homes or in logs and trees outside. But, when temperatures climb, these species can end up outside when the temperatures drop.  That's why you might see insects like stink bugs crawling around when you might not expect them.  How do bugs stay alive in the winter? Some insects, like dragonflies, migrate. Bees cluster around the queen for warmth when it drops below 50 degrees. Others go into a period of rest where they don't reproduce or eat. It's not so much a state of hibernation as a state of dormancy, said Martin Calabrese, a naturalist for the Cleveland Metroparks.  Temperatures in December were close to average for Cleveland, and slightly warmer than average in January. A warmer winter, like last one, can lead to population increases, which means more food for other species, Calabrese said. Is it just insects? In Brecksville, the Metroparks saw an early emergence of dozens of Jefferson salamanders a few weeks ago. It was a warm, wet night, which mimicked the spring weather that normally prompt the salamanders to head to the nearest pond, Calabrese said.  This can lead to some deaths, but might not affect the population greatly in the long term.  Which insects might you be seeing in your home? Stink bugs for one, Calabrese said. Ladybugs, mosquitoes or ants might also be in your home. They can get in through small entry points in homes and can hide in spaces in walls and the ceiling. When bugs feel warm temperatures, that's when they can start moving around and looking for food. Not all of them will be tricked, Calabrese said. Bees can leave the winter cluster when they start feeling the temperatures rising. However, that can lead to some bees dying because they don't return before the cold sets back in. How do you deal with it? Check out the places in your home where pests might be hiding, especially if your home is older.  Know what insects you're looking at before crushing them. For example, stinkbugs release an odor when disturbed. Instead, use a vacuum cleaner to suck them up and then empty the bag immediately.  Read more: Cleveland's had crazy temperature swings so far this winter: Why?

One-day difference: Cleveland swings from 16 degrees Friday to mid-40s Saturday
Cleveland's latest crazy weather has caused a massive temperature hike in two days -- 16 degrees Friday to 50 on Saturday. CLEVELAND, Ohio - We're on another roller coaster ride of weather in Cleveland this weekend. Thursday night, a strong cold front dipped temperatures through Friday to a low of 16 degrees. One day later, today's high is expected to reach in the low to mid 40s because of both a warm front and southerly flow. As warm as this may sound, this still doesn't come close to the record of 73 degrees set back in 1932. Warm up ahead for Saturday, Sunday, cool down by Monday: Northeast Ohio weather forecast Feb. 10-13 Ohio is so flat, anytime there is strong southerly flow, this can drag in warm, moist air all the way from the Gulf of Mexico. This southern air is being exacerbated by the incoming warm front. Cleveland had snow this week, thanks to a blast of Arctic air and a low pressure system. Today, with warm weather and rain in the forecast, the scene switched from winter white to sodden brown.

Why is Northeast Ohio getting thunderstorms in February?
Meteorologist Kelly Reardon explains how Northeast Ohio is getting thunderstorms in February. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Northeast Ohio has been experiencing plenty of rain, with some thunderstorms, since early this morning, and they're not expected to slow down anytime through the rest of the day. But, thunderstorms in February? It's definitely not a common occurrence, so let's look at how this is happening. First, for thunderstorms in the winter in general, you of course need warm temperatures, otherwise we'd be experiencing snow. Today, not only did a passing warm front ramp up temperatures, but very strong southerly flow is dragging in that warm, moist air from the Gulf. Ohio is so flat, that almost any day winds are out of the south, that warm southern air invades the region. Temperatures might reach so warm, in fact, that Cleveland could reach the 60-degree high temperature record set back in 1925. Right now the high is forecasted to reach just 58 degrees, but we're close enough to where a tied record is possible. The second most important ingredient in thunderstorms is a source of instability. That warm front is easily one source, as this pushes the colder air ahead up into the atmosphere. As the air moves upward, it cools to its dew point, forming condensation, plenty of rain, and this in turn increases its instability. But the warm front isn't the only lifting source in the atmosphere, a low pressure system is also doing the same -- so it's basically a double whammy for instability, allowing rain showers to grow strong enough to produce lightning. This happened not too long ago, back in mid-January, with a similar atmospheric setup: strong southerly flow and a passing low pressure system. Why are winter thunderstorms so rare? And why is Cleveland getting them in January? What do you think of this weather? Do you prefer the warmth with some rain, or would you rather the cold and snow?
