WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny, warmer inland–but with local easterly lake breezes in the afternoon limiting warming on area beaches a bit. High 83–but mid 70s lakeshore.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy, more seasonable. Chance of an isolated shower or two toward morning–but impacting only a few spots. Low 66.

THURSDAY: Partly sunny, turning breezy and cooler with lowering humidiites. High 73–but lowering to the 60s lakeside counties as northeast winds lock in, building waves and rip currents along area beaches.
