thursday forecast
Posted at 5:53 AM, Oct 28, 2021

LAKESHORE FLOOD WATCH for Ottawa, Sandusky & Erie Counties Friday thru 8am Saturday morning.

Rain moves in tonight, becoming widespread by the Friday AM rush. Steady rain continues thru the day on Friday. Forecast guidance is hinting at a few hours of dry weather pushing in for many of you Friday evening. Hopefully, not every high school football play-off game will be a soaker.

Keep the rain gear handy for Saturday. More scattered rain showers are likely thru the day on Saturday as surface low pressure meanders across Norther n Ohio.

A few lake effect rain showers will linger on Sunday. Most of those showers will occur during the morning hours. But, a few showers cant be ruled out east of Cleveland into mid-afternoon.

Right now, we'll plan on a cool Browns Game with an isolated lake effect shower. We expect a chilly, dry evening for Trick or Treaters.

Stay tuned for Friday's rain details... could be heavy with flooding possible again.
