UPDATE: Mini Heatwave Headed to Canton Area

CANTON, Ohio (New Talk 1480 WHBC) – We had trouble getting out of the 50s on Wednesday.

But AccuWeather tells us we’ll quickly transition into a short-term heatwave for part of the weekend, with highs around 90 both Friday and Saturday.

The good news if you don’t like the heat: winds will pick up during the day on Friday, so it won’t be as oppressive.

As of Friday morning, the AccuWeather forecast high for the day is 88.

It’s 92 for Saturday, though it may stay in the 80s in some rural areas.

And it’s out of here quickly, with a high of 70 on Sunday.
