Snow is beginning to transition to lake effect snow across the snowbelt region, which will cause some light lake effect showers in the morning that will persist through the day before transitioning into heavier lake effect snow Tuesday night and into Wednesday.

Two snow squalls have now been spotted on our radar. A snow squall is a moderately heavy snowfall with blowing snow and strong, gusty surface winds.

As of 7:35 a.m., a band of snow was spotted in between Cleveland and Euclid, then again along US 322 and US 271.

The roads are relatively cleared with some slick spots. While most of the area is snow-free, a snow band can pop up and drop a quick coating on the roads.

If you're heading towards Akron, Twinsburg or the Macedonia area, road conditions are clear as of 6 a.m. Over near Mayfield Heights, roads are also relatively clear with a light dusting in some spots.

South Akron and west of Lorain should expect a dusting at best. Snow totals will be less than an inch in most spots, with areas of the snowbelt seeing anywhere from 2 to 7 inches.

As of 3 a.m., ODOT had more than 600 crews out plowing and treating the roadways across the state.
