Look for "glazing" of the belt and pulleys.

Would that be from too tight if a belt? The tension on the belt looks pretty good

In my experience, shiny spots are caused by slipping, which can be caused by a loose fit, belt past it's useful life (the rubber gets hard), oil on the belt, etc.

Turned out to be a loose blower belt. Got it super tight and no more squeal!
