CLEVELAND — A line of Lake Effect snow showers along the snowbelt could cause slick spots during the morning commute Tuesday.

A band of moderate to locally heavy snow will move southeast from near Eastlake to Youngstown through the morning, according to the NWS.

  • Youngstown
  • Warren
  • Painesville
  • Willowick
  • Chardon
  • Euclid
  • Mentor
  • Boardman
  • Willoughby
  • Niles
