Here comes the cold.
The weather was reasonable throughout much of the Finger Lakes on Thursday, but a push of Arctic air will plunge into the region — sending temperatures falling throughout the night. Forecasters are looking at two points in the next 48 hours where serious concerns could arise.
The first is overnight, and during the early-morning hours when black ice will be present on roadways.

Forecasters then say record-breaking low temperatures could be possible on Saturday morning, as lows dip down into the teens.
A Wind Advisory has been issued and extended for all of the counties bordering Lake Ontario, as well as most of the counties in Central New York.
On Friday, with sharp winds out of the northwest — it will feel like it’s in the single-digits. It’s a sharp contrast to the temperatures the region has seen over the last several weeks — with mostly above-average temperature readings.
Looking more & more like Rochester will see a new record low temperature set on Saturday morning. The old record to beat: 20 degrees, set in 1957. NDFD projected low Sat: 16! #ROC pic.twitter.com/XEiDettTK0
