ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Partly cloudy skies and dry with temperatures in the 20s and 30s are in store for Wednesday. There will be increasing clouds and wind for Wednesday night and precipitation arriving for Thursday.

Plan on a wintry mix mid to late Wednesday morning changing to a heavier wet snow at times in the afternoon and evening hours. It will be manageable amounts, but enough snow and ice are expected to cause travel issues.

Yellow Alert is in place for a heads up to expect some travel issues Wednesday into Thursday night and Friday morning as well. Plan on a slushy 2-4 inches for most of the region.

Amounts will be less to the west and south where more of a mix is expected. Snow amounts will be a bit higher east of Rochester as the coastal storm develops and brings more snow to that area Thursday night into Friday morning.

Heavier snow amounts over a foot are expected in central and eastern NY state towards New England. Following this storm, local lake effect snow off of Erie will impact areas west of Rochester towards Buffalo Saturday including for the Bills game.
