Cold rain is falling across the region tonight, mixing with snow at times across higher elevations. Expect more of the same through midnight.

Accumulations will be minor to say the least with nothing more than a half of an inch to an inch of snow expected in some spots by Saturday afternoon.

Some of the higher elevations south of Rochester could see an inch or two accumulation through early Sunday.

That said, there will be some lingering flakes likely through the first half of the work week with clouds to dominate skies.
