Dangerous Wind Chills Forecast For Rochester Area

Dangerous Wind Chills Forecast For Rochester Area

IMPACTS: No concerns to travel for most of the day Sunday, but once the snow arrives, expect road conditions to deteriorate rather quickly.

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasted that the chill would last through the weekend in the upper Midwest - but "dangerously cold" temperatures are expected next week, with scattered heavy snow and strong winds. It is too early to discuss accumulation but it is possible we see some light snow accumulation from this system.


The advisory ended around 3 p.m. Things start changing fast Monday night though, as another Arctic cold front blows through dropping temperatures and raising the possibility of accumulating snow through Tuesday morning.

Toronto's medical officer of health has issued another extreme cold weather alert for the city ahead of frigid overnight temperatures that could feel like - 23 with the wind chill. It will bring some light snow along with it. We will see melting taking place during this time even with temperatures falling throughout the day. Northwest winds gusting well over 30 miles per hour along with frigid temperatures falling below zero will set the stage for risky wind chills here.


A dry cold front will bring the FOX8 viewing area clouds on Sunday afternoon with highs for the day around 50 degrees.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of early morning L.E. snow showers, then becoming partly sunny.
