ROCHESTER — A winter weather advisory is in place across Western New York from 3 a.m. Tuesday through 4 a.m. Wednesday. A winter storm warning is in place for Yates and Seneca counties from 2 a.m. Tuesday through 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Snow will start Tuesday morning changing to sleet by Tuesday afternoon and then over to freezing rain Tuesday evening. 

This complex and dynamic weather setup will make for slick driving conditions during morning and evening commutes. 

The snow will start around 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. and become heavy at times through mid-morning with upwards of an inch per hour falling at times.

This will make for a slow and messy morning commute for all of Western New York. Also, the snow will be high in moisture content, which will make it heavy for those shoveling. 

Anticipate four to seven inches of total snowfall with heavier amounts east of the city and lesser to the west into Buffalo.

The sleet will start around lunchtime adding some accumulation on top of the snow and making the evening commute extra slick.

Be sure to give yourself a few extra minutes when heading home and remember to slow down.

There will be a brief period of freezing rain around dinner time which could add to the slick conditions. 

By 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., rain will set in for a few hours before temperatures drop into Wednesday morning resulting in the chance of a flash freeze, causing slick roads yet again.
