Ohio Nowcast.
Welcome to the Ohio Nowcast for Edgewater

Edgewater WebcamEdgewater is part of Lakefront Reservation, operated by Cleveland Metroparks. The nowcast has been used at Edgewater since 2008.

The information on this page is updated by the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District by 11:00 AM (EDT) every day during the swimming season. This nowcast issues advisories and predicts the probability once a day at the posted time only. Storms are likely to result in a quick change in water quality.

Variables used in the Edgewater nowcast models

The variables below will be used in a model to predict the probability of exceeding the E. coli bathing-water standard of 235 most-probable number/100 mL (MPN/100 mL). If the probability exceeds the established threshold (35%), the beach is posted with a swimming advisory.
