First snowfall of the season in Rochester



Rochester, New York — People in the Rochester region saw snowfall for the first time of the season overnight.

“Top three things: Always start with a snow brush and a scraper, because we know things are going to ice over, so you’re going to want to clear all that first,” Mark Mika, AAA of Western and Central New York, said. “An extra warm jacket, just in case you’re stranded for an extended period of time in cold weather, you want to make sure you have a way to stay warm. A small shovel, or some sand, or grit that you can throw down just in case you get stuck on a surface that you can get yourself out of on your own.”

Parts of the area received the first real accumulating snow of the young season by Tuesday morning.

Much of the area woke up to an inch or two of snowfall and this will be a very manageable snow, by the fact it’s the first one of the season.
