CLEVELAND — A messy, icy, snowy morning commute is in store for Tuesday.

Wet roads from rain on Monday, plus a few inches of snow overnight will lead to slippery road conditions for Tuesday morning.

Arctic air will force temperatures below freezing Monday night.

Untreated surfaces and roadways will likely become ice covered and slippery for your Tuesday morning drive.

Steady area-wide snow will shift east and out of the area before sunrise Tuesday. This will allow lake effect snow bands to form by 7 or 8 a.m.

The exact location of these lake effect squalls is yet to be determined.

These snow bands are capable of producing heavy snow and low visibility where ever they form.

A fresh coating of snow on the roads will compound your drive in to work or school Tuesday.

Scattered snow showers and heavier squalls will continue on-and-off through Tuesday into Tuesday night.

Additional accumulations of two to six inches are possible where squall persist until midnight.

Plan ahead and allow extra time to get where you need to go. Drive with care!
