Cold, Blustery With Isolated Lake Effect For Some

Cold, Blustery With Isolated Lake Effect For Some


By Alec Zuch Rochester

Today is blustery and cold, with a cold front passing through this afternoon. This will bring a few scattered snow showers, and perhaps a brief snow squall, dropping a quick couple of inches. Most areas just see and inch or two of fresh snow today, separate from lake effect snow coming in tonight. Meanwhile, although highs are in the teens, most will feel a sub-zero wind chill all day long, so dress accordingly.

Tonight is cold and brisk with lake effect snow east of the city. Placement of the most persistent snow will be east of Rochester in eastern Wayne and northern Cayuga counties. Expect some slow/difficult travel due to snow covered roads, and reduced visibility at times. Accumulations by tomorrow morning could just be a few inches. Tonight’s lows are in the 0s/10s, with wind chills as low as almost 15 or more below zero.

Lake effect snow will tend to be weaker on Wednesday, with more accumulation adding up slowly throughout the day. Highs in the teens.

Temperatures rebound to the 30s for Friday and Saturday, turning mostly sunny for the first half of the weekend. Temperatures warm up close to 50 with rain on the way for Sunday.
