  • The National Weather Service has issued winter storm watches or warnings for much of upstate New York, with more than a foot of snow expected in some eastern areas by the weekend.
    In Ontario County, a winter storm watch is in effect from late tonight through Saturday morning, with heavy snow and sleet expected.
    Flurries are expected later today in the Rochester region, with temperatures dipping into the low 20s and accumulations of 1 to 2 inches of snow by Friday morning. Snow and wind are likely Friday, with accumulations of 6 to 12 inches and higher amounts near Lake Ontario and east of Rochester.
    Forecasters say the heavy snowfall will be produced by the merging of a strong storm coming out of the west meeting a weaker but moisture-laden system approaching from the south.
