Ohio Nowcast.
Welcome to the Ohio Nowcast for Villa Angela and Euclid

Villa Angela Beach Villa Angela and Euclid are part of Lakefront Reservation, operated by Cleveland Metroparks.

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. Storms are likely to result in a quick change in water quality.

Variables used in the Villa Angela and Euclid nowcast models

The variables below will be used in a model to predict the probability of exceeding the bathing-water standard of 235 most-probable number/100 mL (MPN/100 mL). If the probability exceeds the established threshold (36%), the beach is posted with a water-quality warning.
