The National Weather Service (NWS) predicts single-digit temperatures through Sunday morning ahead of a potential blast of snow expected Sunday night into Monday. A winter storm watch is in effect, with nine or more inches of snow expected.

“I urge residents to travel with caution and prepare accordingly for the extreme cold and heavy snowfall forecast for our region,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “Our Office of Emergency Management will monitor the changing weather and road conditions throughout the storm.
