FORECAST | Looking ahead: Zeta's rain arrives in Ohio on Thursday

The weather looks active through the weekend. Rain from Zeta will push into Ohio, especially south of I-76, with our first lake-effect snow chance this Sunday.

CLEVELAND — Lots of weather is coming towards Ohio the next five days. Here are the highlights:

1. Scattered mist Tuesday night

2. Rain from Zeta arrives Thursday

3. Nice Halloween, but cool

4. Rain to snow Sunday evening

While mist will continue Tuesday evening, a break with drier conditions and a few sun peaks is expected for Wednesday. It should be a nice day overall. Then Zeta arrives...


By Thursday morning, rain from the remnants of Zeta will push north over northeast Ohio. The heaviest rain will be in southern Ohio because our upper-level wind pattern will curve Zeta more easterly towards the Mid-Atlantic.

As the heaviest rain bands stay south towards the Ohio River, we'll likely pick up only 0.5" to 1" in Northeast Ohio by Thursday night.

A few lingering rain showers may continue on Monday but rainfall totals will be minimal.


A strong cold front will swing through Ohio on Sunday bringing rain showers. By Sunday night as temperatures cool, we'll likely transition over to some lake-effect snow showers. Accumulation is still TBD, but looks light overall. This would be a first snowfall of the season.
