ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Tonight we will see rain return to the forecast along with mostly cloudy skies.

A storm system moves up the East Coast bringing Rochester rain and eventually snowfall.


We have put out a Yellow Alert for Saturday night. We are going to see rain transition to snowfall just in time for your evening plans on Saturday.

Snow will be falling and flakes will be larger and wet. We can see anywhere from around 2 to 4 inches of snow here in Rochester. The western counties in our viewing area could see anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow.

The highest forecasted snow totals will be in Wyoming County with possibly 8 inches. Wyoming County is also under a Winter Weather Advisory for the 4 to 8 inches of snow and gusty winds around 35 mph. Snow will drift and blow with winds this strong and will make for difficult travel.

Sunday snow showers will fall but we are not expecting heavy snow.

Next storm system moves in on Monday night into Tuesday bringing accumulating snowfall.
