Good Friday everyone! Yes, it's very cold out there, but at least we have the sun! Highs will range from 10 to 15 here in Rochester, & the record low high of 12 set back in 1875 will probably stand, as it looks like we will likely sneak up to 13 or 14 later this afternoon. Thankfully, there is not much wind today, but still a bit of brisk breeze out of the west will keep our wind chill factor down around 0 for the remainder of this Friday.
The first day of March will be mainly quiet, brisk & much milder with sun fading behind increasing clouds & a little snow possible late in advance of a strong cold front. Highs should have no problem making it well into the 30s Saturday afternoon, which will feel so nice compared to what we've endured much of this week!
Saturday night should be pretty snowy, especially late into Sunday with snows likely tapering to lighter flurries off the lake during the afternoon. Between the cold front, lake enhancement & effect, I believe at least a few inches, if not a little more, especially up closer to the lake, will occur Saturday night & Sunday.
At this time, the storm Sunday night into Monday to the south looks like will leave us alone, but snow lovers I would not totally give up on it yet. Let's see how far south Saturday night/early Sunday's cold front makes it to the south. The further north it is the better our chances of seeing measurable snow from the storm. Again, though, as of now it looks like there's a better chance of us not seeing any snow than getting some, but it's still 2 to 3 days out. Stay tuned through the weekend for updates. Either way, it will turn unseasonably cold again Sunday through the majority of next week with a little lake snow possible, but much of next week looks quiet right now.
Have a great rest of your Friday & weekend bloggers!
