Coronavirus: 6 people under voluntary quarantine in Monroe County

Monroe County Health Department officials say six local people are currently under voluntary quarantine amid concerns that they may have possibly contracted novel coronavirus.

Weather forecast: Lake effect snow and arctic air are on the way

UPDATE: The vast majority of the area is dealing with generally just light snow this morning. Most roads are just wet with some secondary, untreated, and elevated road surfaces just a bit on the slushy side. ALL WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO EXPIRE.

You’ll still need to allow a little bit of extra time this morning to brush off your car but largely the morning commute will be not too tough to take as you head to work and school. Watch for the snow to pick up in intensity and coverage as the arctic cold front slides south from Canada this afternoon.  

As the arctic front passes, temperatures will tumble quickly as we wait on a narrow window of opportunity for lake-effect snow showers to fire. This last pop of snow will be limited in scope & duration, only affecting a small percentage of the viewing area. That said, places like Rochester & areas eastward into Wayne county could see several additional inches of fluffy accumulation Thursday night into Friday before the setup for snow shuts off.
