First Alert Weather: Snowy Sunday evening followed by an unsettled work week ahead

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Today will feature mostly cloudy skies before rain and snow showers move in for the latter part of the afternoon. Our Alberta Clipper will bring us a chance to see some rain and snow showers after 3 this afternoon.

The best chance for snow showers this afternoon will be the higher elevations south of the thruway with most us the region starting off as light rain. Weill see colder air filter into the region, but not until the sun sets this evening.

Widespread light snow is expected to take over the region as we head after 6 this evening. Accumulation will be tough as temperatures will remain in the mid-30s with only localized areas near freezing. Light snow will continue until it tapers after 9 this evening.

The best chance for any accumulation into Monday morning will be for the highest elevations south. Some areas out the door early Monday will be near freezing so heads up for a few wet spots on roads to be a bit slippery.

Monday will feature lake effect rain and snow showers, but no additional accumulation expected. The chance for lake effect rain and snow showers continues through much of this week before a cold front moves in Thursday.

An unsettled work week is ahead as we will be tracking some sort of rain or snow throughout the entire week. Washouts or whiteouts are not expected, but the unsettled weather in place will pop up opportunities to see something each day.

Lake effect rain and snow showers continue through ,Monday and into Tuesday morning before sun returns in the afternoon. We will remain cool early this week before we warm up to near 60 on Wednesday! However, the warm weather does not last long as a cold front approaches and brings us showers late and a better chance for cold rain Thursday.

This cold front will also knock our temperatures back down into the 40s and again set up the possibility for lake effect rain and snow showers for Friday.
