A winter storm warning is in effect for Monroe and Wayne Counties for Friday until Saturday morning.

Snow is expected to start small early Friday, becoming heavier throughout the afternoon and into the night.

By Saturday morning, there could be anywhere between eight to 12 inches of snow north of the Thruway and four to eight inches south of the Thruway.

Travel is expected to be especially difficult on Friday night.

The City of Rochester says crews and plowing contractors will be working around the clock.

In case of power outages, RG&E and NYSEG say they have emergency planners ready but still advise having battery powered flashlights on hand.
