This weekend on Lake Erie is exactly what water lovers have been waiting for: sunny, dry and hot weather is ahead from Friday to Sunday. Sailors and boaters: winds will hover just under 10 knots.

Saturday is another great day to get some time on the water. Sailors, boaters, paddle boarders and swimmers can enjoy tiny waves, sunny skies and a light breeze. Go ahead and jump in to get out of the 100-degree heat, though the Coast Guard warns that the lake is still chilly!

Scattered thunderstorms are possible Sunday night, but the morning, afternoon and early evening are still looking clear and dry. Even with the storms on the horizon, waves won’t be impressive.

If you missed the water this weekend and you’re trying to go out Monday instead, beware of a good chance for scattered thunderstorms.

All weekend, water temperatures will sit in the upper 60s, and high air temperatures will top 80 degrees.
