[anvplayer video=”5152129″ station=”998131″]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A weak storm system is set to pass over Western New York for later on Friday and early Sunday. At this point, the low-pressure system will have limited amounts of moisture and marginally cold temperatures which should limit any snow accumulations. 

Most of the area will receive less than an inch, most of which will be on grassy surfaces, but an inch or two is possible in the higher elevations of the Bristol Hills.

Friday night will be dry for the evening then wet snow showers will develop around midnight. The low temperature is expected near to be 29 degrees, but the mercury will begin to rise later into Friday. 

Sunday some wet snow is likely for the morning before mixing and changing over to just rain for the afternoon.  Before the changeover, a slushy accumulation is possible with little or no impact on the area roadways.  The high temperature will be in the upper 30s. 

If you are going to the Bills game at Highmark Stadium it is a good idea to bring the items to deal with chilly rain showers.  Monday will be mainly gray and maybe some passing flurries.  The temperature will be in the lower 30s.  Tuesday and Wednesday should feature more sunshine, but again the temperature will be in the low to middle 30s.

The News 10NBC First Alert meteorologists continue to focus on late Thursday and Friday.  A storm that is now coming onshore on the west coast will likely march across the country and could have an impact on our weather by the end of the work week. 

It is too early for a detailed forecast, but a measurable snowfall is possible.  At this time, there is no yellow alert posted for Western New York, but that could change in the coming days.
