Rochester, NY - A winter storm warning continues for all of WNY through 6 pm Sunday evening.

Area snow totals range from 8" south of Rochester to nearly 20" of snow in Hilton. This snow is blowing and drifting due to its powdery nature and reducing visibility substantially for area travelers.

Plan on doubling travel times today, possibly more. The visibility in open areas may occasionally drop to less than 1/4 of a mile at times, due to blowing snow.

In any bands of lake effect snow, there will be potential of 3-6" of new snow between now and early tomorrow morning. Many areas will see storm total snow amounts between 18 and 24" by midday Monday.

In addition to the snow, this season's coldest air will stick with us through at least Monday night. The Monday's high will barely reach into the teens.

With sustained winds between 10-25 mph, the wind chill will fall into a dangerous range. The forecast wind chill Sunday night and Monday morning will range from -15 down to -25.

A Wind Chill Warning is in effect for Livingston, Ontario, Yates, and Wyoming County through 7 pm Monday. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Monroe, Orleans, Wayne, and Genesee Counties through the same period of time.
