Weather forecast: Shivering into the weekend with more snow on the way


Detailed forecast for Rochester, the Lakeshore & Finger Lakes

Things quiet down some Saturday with very little in the way of leftover lake flakes. The cold remains, however. Highs will struggle to break freezing with breezy conditions holding tight. That will keep the wind chill well below what the air temperatures suggest through the day. We don’t expect any accumulation from the limited flakes that exist and travel issues are not anticipated.

Snow is expected to return Sunday as a weak area of low pressure works into our vicinity. This will set the stage for an areawide light snow Sunday, different from the lake effect we’ve seen up to this point. Guidance suggests light accumulations will be likely Sunday with additional stickage into Sunday night on the backside of the low with wraparound moisture and Lake Ontario involvement. By early Monday, it’s looking increasingly likely most of WNY will have a few inches of snow out of this.

Leftover snow showers early Monday will try and give way to drier and eventually milder conditions heading deeper into next week. There are early indications of active weather brewing in the general vicinity of next weekend, but we are far too early to latch on to anything particular trend. Something to watch.
