First Alert Weather: Active weather pattern, but no big storms
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Western New York had a wintry day, but with the temperature in the low to mid-30s, much of the snow was melting for this Sunday. However, as low pressure slowly rotates into eastern New York the temperature will slowly fall below freezing this evening.
The News10NBC First Alert meteorologists expect it to turn cold enough this evening for lake enhanced snow showers to develop off Lake Ontario. This may produce some poor visibility at times with generally minor accumulations in the range of 1-2 inches. We expect much of this snow will taper off to snow flurries after midnight and the temperature will slowly fall into the upper 20s.
Back to work and school on Monday will feature a few flurries or a snow shower for the morning. Little or no accumulation is expected as low pressure rotates off the New England coast. We may even find skies brightening for the afternoon with the high temperature in the upper 30s. Then a moderation in the temperature is expected by mid-week. It will be not as cold by Wednesday and Thursday as the temperature will warm into the lower 40s on Wednesday and the upper 40s by early Thursday.
The next weather system with a series of cold fronts will bring the next shot of colder air for the second half of the workweek. It will get progressively colder again with rain and snow showers late Friday and Saturday. Our weather turns a little unsettled by the weekend, as we have conflicting signals from our computer models. Right now it appears we will see a combination of rain and wet snow showers for Saturday and Sunday.
