ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- The News10NBC First Alert Weather team has Yellow Alert is up for Saturday for lots of rain and the possibility for some sleet and ice. 

Some light rain is forecasted around the region Friday as warmer air begins to move into Rochester with showers tonight.


Looking ahead to Saturday, we will start relatively dry with temperatures soaring into the 50s and 60s. In fact, we may make a run at a record high Saturday. The current record is 63 from 1975. 

The rain looks to arrive in the middle to late afternoon and will be heavy at times into Saturday night. Areas around Rochester and points west may receive over an inch of rain and this could lead to localized flooding. 

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has placed Monroe, Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming Counties under a Flood Watch for part of the weekend. 

The threat of icing has diminished but could still develop close to the lakeshore, especially west of Rochester late Saturday night into Sunday morning.  

Strong gusty winds Sunday will usher in some colder weather but will help to dry us out.
