Winter storm poised to strike New York state

ALBANY (AP) – Much of upstate New York is bracing for some snow.

Forecasters say a cold air mass from Canada could dump three to six inches of snow on the Albany area by Tuesday, and the National Weather Service in Binghamton has announced a winter weather advisory for tonight.

The Albany region has already broken the record for latest snowfall, which was last set on Christmas Eve in 1912.

A mix of sleet, freezing rain, snow and gusting winds is expected along the Southern Tier, in the Catskills and Finger Lakes region, and the greater Syracuse area.

The wintry mix is expected to develop this evening, change to freezing rain early Tuesday morning.
