We will be on the northern edge of an area of low pressure that is slowly tracking northeast today. While Rochester is dry initially, a few showers are possible by late morning as precip. develops from south to north. Steadier precipitation stays south and east. Precip. starts off mainly as rain with pockets of freezing rain possible mainly south across the Southern Tier this morning with temperatures likely at or below freezing. This will result in very slick conditions, especially untreated surfaces. Otherwise, today will be a spotty light rain to snow event. Highs will be in the mid 30s to around 40 degrees. Any rain will end as a few snow showers late tonight with temperatures falling into the lower 30s.
A cold front will cross the region Monday morning producing a few snow showers followed by lake effect snow southeast of the Lake Monday afternoon and evening. It will turn blustery and colder with highs in the mid 30s. Temperatures at or above freezing should limit accumulations. We dry out on Tuesday with a mix of sunshine and clouds, but temperatures turn colder with highs in the upper 20s. More cloud cover works in for Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures rise back into the 40s. We're back in the 40s Friday with some rain looking likely. Stay tuned for updates.
Have a great day!
