CLEVELAND — On Tuesday, rain will mix with and change to snow through the day, with some accumulation possible where squalls persist. Lake effect snow will continue across portions of Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania this morning.

ODOT camera shows a snow-covered highway on I-480 and I-271.

Some heavier bursts of lake effect snow could reduce visibilities to a half-mile or less with a quick snow accumulation of a half-inch to an inch, according to the National Weather Service.

Brief bursts of snow and rain embedded with some light snow are expected until early evening.

Power of 5 meteorologist Trent Magill gave an update on lake effect snow at 7:30 a.m. Watch it live in the media player below:

By midday, the rain will change to lake effect by midday. Snow totals will be very limited, with most spots getting little to no accumulation during the day.

In Chardon, a light mix is falling but not sticking.
