The snow continues to melt today and there are areas of dense fog.

As of 11 a.m. Friday, meteorologists said water was starting to recede.

A flood watch will be in effect for the southern and midcoast areas from Friday afternoon though Saturday morning.

Sunday should be mostly sunny with a high near 36 degrees, the National Weather Service reports.

Ice and sleet as well as reduced visibility are expected to make travel conditions risky Friday morning. It starts today with temperatures rising into the 50s and wraps up this weekend with potentially heavy snow.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo issued a flood warning for Livingston and other counties in Western New York around 4:40 a.m. Friday morning. Conditions then appear favorable for more lake-effect snow through early next week. Low pressure will develop right overhead with the snow possibly heavy at times and maybe enough warm for rain and snow at the coast, changing to snow.

Sam Shamburger, lead forecaster with NWS, says that a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow will impact travel across the area. Highs will reach the upper 20s on Friday.

WHAT.Mixed precipitation occurring. The ice will result in hard travel conditions, including during the evening commute. The overnight low is expected to be near 23.

In addition, another shot of cooler air is coming in from the North with winds going 10 to 20 miles per hour during the day on Saturday, he said.

The cold front dragged Thursday morning's moderate temperatures down quickly to around and below freezing temperatures.

Gusting winds may also cause power outages.

ESTIMATED RAINFALL. Up to 2.75 inches. Ice accumulations will be mainly less than one tenth of an inch.

The system will move out of the region by Friday evening.

There are no wind chill factors in the forecasts for Sunday and Monday.

The day should have a high of 61 degrees with patchy fog and wind gusts as high as 23 miles per hour.

For Jan. 15, a record high of 73 degrees was set a year ago and the record low of 20 degrees was set in 1988. Temperatures will stay well below freezing over the next week.

The NWS suggests residents keep an eye on area waterways and be alert for sudden rises.

"Things probably will improve some, you know with road crews out and that kind of thing, especially on the major highways".
