ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Stubborn lake flakes off of Lake Ontario produced fairly persistent snow showers, but lacking much accumulation.

Those flakes should come to an end overnight, with a gray sky continuing. That means we will start Wednesday with lots of clouds, but we should break those clouds open a bit during the afternoon, finally seeing some sunshine after days of gloom!


It won't last too long, with clouds tending to fill back in a bit more on Thursday and Friday, but we should be staying rain and snow-free through the end of the week.

Temperatures will rise above freezing by Thursday and Friday and should flirt with 40 over the weekend. That means that any precipitation that falls this weekend will once again be a mix of rain and some wet snow, and tend to have a hard time accumulating. 

For those longing for winter, it does still appear we may see a pattern change later next week, or into next weekend, that would bring a return to cold, and a better chance for some snow.

That being said, that is obviously quite a ways out, and any specifics are far from clear.

But, don't give up on winter, if you're hoping for some snow. After all, we do still have 2/3 of the winter to go!
