A winter weather advisory for Monroe and surrounding counties has been canceled, but flurries continue to fall throughout the region Wednesday morning.
The Weather Service canceled the advisory just after 10:30 a.m. It was initially set to expire at 6 a.m. Thursday.
Depending on your location, forecasters with the National Weather Service in Buffalo said area residents may see total accumulations of 6 to 12 inches of snow, as well as “difficult travel conditions at times with snow covered roads and reduced visibility.”
Nearly 5 inches of snow was measured on the ground at the Greater Rochester International Airport at 8 a.m. Forecasters said the snowfall total measured a 30-hour span, starting Tuesday at midnight.
The wintry weather caused a slow, snowy and slushy commute Wednesday morning.
Weather Service Meteorologist John Rozbicki said around dawn on Wednesday that much of the Rochester region would see another 1 to 3 inches of snow by Thursday morning. Higher elevations, including the Bristol Hills in Ontario County and parts of Wayne County are expected to see higher snow totals within the same time frame, with another 3 to 5 inches of snow expected, he said.
“Once the sun comes up, the snow will mostly be on grassy areas,” he said. “With the sun, it will have trouble sticking to the roads.”
Winds gusting as high as 40 mph will cause areas of blowing and drifting snow, mainly in open areas.
As for the rest of the week, predictions still call for an inch or two of snow Thursday and Friday. With daytime temperatures in the mid-30s. Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day, is expected to be sunny but chilly.
Sunday is also expected to be sunny, and also brisk, with daytime temperatures just reaching into the 40s. The weekend forecast, still being several days out, may still change with weather patterns before the weekend.
