Northern Ohio is feeling the heat the first day of summer as temperatures are expected to approach all-time records in some cities.
Senior or recreation centers have been designated cooling centers in Toledo and Cleveland to help people cope with temperatures Wednesday that the National Weather Service expects to be only a few degrees short of those cities' records.
Cleveland temperatures should be between 92 and 94 degrees, while Toledo is expected to approach 96. Cleveland's record temperature for this date is 96 and Toledo's is 98.
Parts of southern Ohio are expecting temperatures mostly in the low 90s, well below area records. Cincinnati is expected to reach around 91 degrees.
Forecasters say a cold front expected to move through Thursday night should cool Ohio off by Friday.
