Time to mow the lawn.

Time to run around the block.

Time to pull out a jacket.

The heat wave is coming to an end.

Enjoy your respite from the 90-degree heat, because it will be relatively short-lived.

Thanks to a cold front that stormed and rumbled across Northeast Ohio on Thursday, Friday’s high temperature will be in the chilly upper 70s.

Saturday’s high under sunny skies also will be in the upper 70s.

But the 80s are expected to return by Sunday and continue through Thursday, with temperatures flirting with the 90s.

As warm as it has been, it also has been wet.

The National Weather Service says the Akron area is way above normal in the precipitation department.

The weather service measures precipitation in the so-called water year that started Oct. 1 and we were 6.78 inches above normal. This was measured as of July 2 — before a series of gully washers in and around the Fourth of July.

Things should dry out. There’s no rain predicted by the weather service into the foreseeable until showers and storms return on Thursday.
