First Alert Weather: Cold & quiet weekend, storm possible next week

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Light lake effect flakes that were flying for much of Friday will tend to linger into the overnight, and even early Saturday before ending. Most will see less than another 1" of snow before it ends, and some sun returns Saturday afternoon. The cold will be the bigger weather story this weekend. While coastal New England gets hammered with blizzard conditions, we'll just have to deal with chilly air. Highs in the lower teens on Saturday combined with a brisk wind will make it feel below zero for much of Saturday. A Wind Chill Advisory is up for areas south of the Thruway, where the air will be the coldest Saturday morning.

Picture for First Alert Weather: Cold & quiet weekend, storm possible next week

Sorry, folks.

Subzero wind chills are in the weekend forecast. A wind chill advisory has been issued for Saturday for Ontario, Livingston, Wyoming, Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. And while Monroe County is not part of the advisory, it will still be extremely cold. The good news is that Sunday will feel positively balmy in comparison, with temps rising into to the low 20s. So, maybe break out your cargo shorts.

Winter weather, ongoing COVID-19 surge worsen blood supply crisis

Blood and platelet donation appointments critically needed amid first-ever Red Cross blood crisis. While there has been a significant and encouraging response to the dire need for blood across the nation, the American Red Cross needs more people to give in the weeks ahead to recover from its worst blood shortage in more than a decade. Those interested in helping are urged to schedule the earliest-available blood or platelet donation appointment in their area to help ensure accident victims rushed to the emergency room, those being treated for cancer and others who count on blood product transfusions can receive lifesaving care without delay.

Wind chill advisory issued for parts of Rochester region. What is wind chill?

A bitter cold weekend with subzero wind chills will cool parts of the Rochester region this weekend, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo. A wind chill advisory was issued for Saturday, between midnight and 11 a.m. for Ontario, Livingston, Wyoming, Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. Forecasters predict "very cold wind chills" as low as 15 to 20 below zero. Monroe County, which was not part of the advisory, will still feel cold, but wind chills are not expected to dip below -10 and it does not meet the standards for an advisory, said Weather Service Meteorologist Jim Mitchell. (The air temperature will reach the mid-teens in Rochester on Saturday.)

First Alert In-Depth: Beyond the 10 day

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) - It is Wednesday January 26th, which means it is time for another update to “Beyond the 10 Day.”. Across the United States right now we have an upper level ridge out west and a digging trough over the east. This current pattern will remain in place through the rest of the month until things change next week. Zooming further out, we have the lobe of the Polar Vortex remaining over the Hudson Bay in Canada and ridging over the Atlantic. These two pieces will be important to track over the next week as they will dictate our pattern shift moving forward.
