A Bitter Blast Sweeps Into Our Region
Our “mild” spell is over. After temperatures got into the 40s by late Sunday night and early Monday, by later in the morning on Monday, a front came through rapidly bringing down temperatures for much of our region.
There is a high wind warning in effect until 10am for much of the area. There is also a wind chill warning in effect from 6pm Monday to 6pm Tuesday, with temperatures expected to fall to the teens by late Monday afternoon, and into the single numbers at night. Wind chills overnight Monday into Tuesday could reach as low as 30 degrees below zero.
There is also a lake snow advisory for Monroe County from 1pm Monday to 7pm on Tuesday, with several inches of snow expected in some spots. There is a lake snow warning for Genesee and Wyoming Counties from 11am Monday to 6am Wednesday, with heavy accumulations and poor visibility possible in some areas.
Area officials advise you be careful of road conditions especially as the temperatures drop quickly and freeze whatever moisture is on the pavement, and also watch out for the dangerously cold wind chill Monday night and early Tuesday.
