Not much snow for most of us, including the Greater Rochester area, but areas west will receive quite a bit more from near Batavia westbound to Buffalo area & south a bit into Northwest Wyoming County. There will also be significant blowing & drifting snows creating blizzard conditions to the west, & even though there isn't much snow here in the Rochester area & Monroe & in Livingston counties there will be enough blowing & drifting to keep roads snow covered & icy in many spots, so be careful when venturing out in these areas too.
Everyone will feel the numbing chill with temperatures probably not even making the upper single digits in Rochester, which would set a record low high if that's in fact the case! The record lowest high temperature in Rochester on this date, January 7th is 8° set back on 1886! Believe we will break it the way we are not warming. Wind chills will remain between about -10 & -20 this afternoon & much of tonight before finally climbing slowly, but surely above 0 by Wednesday afternoon. So yes, Wednesday will become more tolerable, but far from good. 20s to near 30 will be felt Thursday with sun & not too much wind, so that will feel like a heat wave after a very cold start & then 30s Friday with maybe a little light snow/flurries Friday morning. The weekend will likely be our January Thaw with highs quite possibly reaching the 50s Saturday with some rain developing! More cold air will try to make a couple runs at us next week & thereafter the way it looks now. Stay tuned for updates through the week.
Have a good night & stay inside & warm everyone!
