ALBANY (AP) - Dozens of school districts are sending students home early and have canceled after-school activities ahead of a storm that's expected to dump a foot or more on some parts of eastern New York.
Some schools canceled classes altogether today even before the first flakes fell. The National Weather Service has issued winter storm advisories and warnings for most of New York from the Lower Hudson Valley to the state's southwest corner.
The National Weather Service says the storm will bring a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain into Thursday morning, with some areas around Albany and in the Adirondacks expected to get 10 to 14 inches of snow.
For some sections of the Albany area, it will be the first significant snowfall of the season since last fall.
