ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Our hiatus from winter is coming to an end.

A weak storm system moving through the Great Lakes will bring us a mix of rain and wet snow overnight tonight, with little to no accumulation.


The snow will begin to accumulate Thursday morning, as the air slowly grows colder. Most of Thursday's snow will be lake effect, so amounts will vary.

But, most of us will see a 1-3" accumulation on Thursday, with a few more inches in Wyoming and Wayne Counties Thursday night and Friday morning as the lake snow will slowly begin to wind down.

A gusty wind up to 40 mph out of the northwest on Thursday will create some areas of blowing snow, which may reduce visibility at times if you are out on the roads.

A Winter Weather Advisory for lake effect snow is posted for Wyoming County through 6 p.m. Thursday, and Wayne County through Friday morning for the additional lake snow.

Friday will turn much colder, with temperatures likely not making it out of teens behind this bout of snow Thursday.
