CLEVELAND - If you thought Friday morning was chilly, you weren't alone as record setting temperatures made for a cold start to the day.

Cleveland Hopkins Airport set a new record low of 51 degrees at 5:37 a.m. this morning which is the seventh time this year the area has seen either record high or record low temperatures, according to a review of National Weather Service statistics.

An unusually cold bubble of air has kept temperatures well below normal since Tuesday when a cold front pushed through the area. Several waterspouts were spotted over Lake Erie with weather more reminiscent of October and November than mid-July in northeast Ohio.

WKYC Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling says the next seven days will see a return to more seasonable temperatures when highs are in the 80s and lows are in the 60s.
