We set a record for today's low temperature in Rochester. The coldest wind chill this morning was -44.

Arctic air remains entrenched in the region today under strong Canadian high pressure meaning we'll have brutally cold weather, but plenty of bright sunshine for our Friday. Expect mostly sunny skies through the day with gusty south winds. High temperatures will be in the teens with wind gusts occasionally reaching 30 miles per hour. Temperatures will be in the teens and 20s tonight, but with strong south winds working to pull in that warmer air with blowing snow concerns across the area.

There will be a chance of light snow showers or flurries, but no accumulation to start our Saturday as a weak storm system grazes the area to the north. Look for increasing sunshine later in the day with high temperatures in the lower 30s and gusty west winds. Wind chill values tomorrow will be in the upper teens and 20s, so it won't actually feel like the 30s, but it will still certainly be more comfortable than the Arctic chill we're currently feeling.

After a bright and quiet Sunday that will feature sunshine and high temperatures in the 20s, a storm system from the west will bring a chance for some light snow late Sunday night and early Monday. A little freezing rain may mix in at times during the day with temperatures in the lower 30s before another dose of snow develops in the evening on the backside of the system. Overall a few inches of snowfall will be possible, but things may be slick at times from the snow and freezing rain.

We'll have colder sunshine in the middle part of next week with high temperatures in the 20s before another storm system brings a chance for some late-day snow next Friday. High temperatures will be in the lower 30s and it looks like some of that 30-degree warmth may continue into next weekend.
