Frigid overnight, single digit readings cover our area while wind chill temps hover near 10 or 15 degrees below zero into Wednesday morning. For some, an advisory: Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for early Wednesday for Monroe, Wayne and Orleans counties as a wave of lake effect snow moving south off of Lake Ontario.

While a Lake Effect Snow Warning continues for Wyoming County until 6 p.m. on Wednesday, a new Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for later Tuesday into Wednesday for Orleans, Monroe and Wayne counties as a wave of lake effect snow moves south off of Lake Ontario.

Otherwise, it’s all about the cold with frigid overnight readings falling well down into the single digits as the wind chill dives back to near 10 or 15 degrees below zero overnight/early on Wednesday.

Lake effect snow showers move in late Tuesday along the Ontario coast and then into Rochester by morning. Snow showers continue on and off through the day on Wednesday with total accumulations on the order of 1 to 3 inches for most of the area. However heavier totals of 3 to 5 inches will be possible for northern sections of the lake counties along and north of Rt. 104. Wednesday’s temps remain bitter cold with near record cold highs expected in the lower teens. Yikes!

While some lake effect snow showers remain possible on Thursday, it looks to be light as the arctic invasion continues with lows near zero and highs struggling in the lower teens. Clouds increase on Friday with a chance for light snow developing as a fast moving upper system arrives. Some minor accumulations will be possible. Light snow appears likely Friday night and Saturday that looks to be followed by a reinforcing shot of cold into early next with subzero lows and highs that might not escape the single digits!! Additional lake affect snows can be expected Sunday through early next week.

Temps will be very slow to warm during the second half of next week.
