First Alert Weather: Blowing snow, bitter cold expected Friday, Saturday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC has issued a First Alert Weather Day for Friday and Saturday morning for blowing snow and bitter cold temperatures.

This is thanks to an area of low pressure moving along the Eastern seaboard. We will experience the outer fringes of it here in Western New York, but that combined with lake enhanced snowfall means we could see as much as two to four inches of snowfall in Monroe County and higher amounts in Wayne County around three to five inches. Wayne County is under a Winter Storm Advisory from Friday at 5 p.m. to Saturday at 8 a.m.

The snow will be at its steadiest Friday night with some flurries lingering into Saturday morning. Wind will peak Friday night as well around 30-40 miles per hour. Furthermore, the wind chill Saturday morning will be into the single digits.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for our area ahead of the snow and windy conditions. The main impacts:

- Slick roads, mainly after sunset Friday
- Blowing snow
- Single-digit wind chills Saturday morning

The good news is that as we head into Sunday, temperatures will rebound back into the 50s and this snow will melt off rather quickly.
