Yellow Alert discontinued: Rain showers Wednesday night
ROCHESTER, N.Y. The snow and wintry mix from today has all but ended and switched over to mostly rain showers as temperatures continue to slowly rise.
Most of the area did see a fresh accumulation of sloppy, dense snow, with reports coming in anywhere from 2-4″ of snow. High water content and some wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain cut down on amounts to keep the snowfall in check and manageable, but did cause some issues on roads.
Rain showers will fall off and on tonight, changing back to snow showers by morning as temperatures approach freezing once again. The Thursday morning commute may be a little slick, with snow showers returning and wet spots turning icy once again.
It shouldn’t be a major issue, but be aware and leave yourself a little extra time in the morning to get where you need to go. We’ll see another coating to an inch of lake snow through Thursday, so minor amounts. Winds will kick up and temperatures slowly drop into the 20s.
We’ll be tracking the potential for a little more minor snow on Sunday and perhaps another shot at some snow by the middle of next week. Bottom line: our weather pattern has become more active, so we’ll at least see better chances to increase our seasonal snowfall numbers.
