Tonight across the Rochester area, expect steady snow, heavy at times.  Snowfall rates of 1-3" per hour can be expected overnight.  It will be blustery as well, which will lead to blowing and drifting snow and therefore reduced visibility.  Use extreme caution if you have to travel.  Lows will be in the teens. 

On Sunday, snow will continue, steady and heavy at times, through the morning.  Then the transition to lighter lake effect snow will occur during the afternoon.  Highs will only be in the teens, but it will feel colder with the wind. 

Snow totals by early Monday will be on the order of a foot to a foot-and-a-half for most, with locally higher amounts.  Snow will dissipate Monday, but temperatures remain frigid.  Highs will only be around 10.  Wind chill values could drop to as low as -35 degrees.

We’re back into the 20s with quiet weather on Tuesday. 

A brief warm-up is then expected on Wednesday as highs reach near 40 degrees, albeit with rain and snow showers.
