Weather forecast: A flaky start to Monday, breezy this afternoon

You may want to account for a little extra time this morning to get going as we deal with a bit of snow from the overnight that will linger here early today. Yesterday brought about an inch and a half of snow to Rochester. We now have more snow for the season than any other location in the Eastern United States including Caribou, Maine!

Once this snow passes, the winds will ramp up out a bit from the west. Lake-effect snow will set up east of Lake Erie and Ontario with more accumulating snow in those regions and just a few flakes here and there around Rochester. Clouds will break for at least some sun this afternoon. Temperatures today will top out in the middle 30s. Cooler air settles in and we see brief high pressure Tuesday with temperatures starting in the 20s and finishing in the upper 30s.
