Sunday evening weather update
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Wet snow tapering overnight.
A chilly rain transitions to a steady, light and wet snow tonight. Most areas will see little to nothing on roadways, but we will see our first real slushy coating on grassy and elevated surfaces. Temperatures will approach the freezing point tonight, so there may be few slick spots on overpasses.
The area of low pressure responsible for the steady light snow moves away Monday morning, drawing in a chillier breeze. Winds will gust 20-30 mph at times on Monday, making it feel even chillier. High temperatures will flirt with 40.
Along with the chilly air, we’ll see some passing lake rain or wet snow showers, but no accumulation. Any lake mix ends on Tuesday with some sun returning, but we remain a little chilly, with highs in the 40s.
Wednesday will see temperatures flirting with 60, but it’ll come with more clouds and a passing light shower or two.
We’ll see a much better chance for rain and showers on Thursday with a cold front. Temperatures will start the day in the 50s, but fall back into the 40s by the afternoon.
Next Friday will be chillier enough to see a minor lake response, and a few passing rain or wet snow showers, but no accumulation.
Next weekend is split, with dry weather and some sun on Saturday, followed by a few mixed showers on Sunday.
We’ll keeping an eye on early to mid next week (Thanksgiving week) for the potential for a storm system that may bring a rain/snow mix, and the possibility of accumulating snow, that could impact Thanksgiving holiday plans.
