Wind and snow cause whiteouts, car accidents

January 31, 2013
By staff ( , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

Strong wind is whipping up falling snow today as a cold front moves into northern New York.

Power outages have been reported in Wilmington, and there were some road accidents amid whiteout conditions on state Route 86 in Saranac Lake, including a multi-vehicle collision in front of Adirondack Medical Center and a one-car crash near the tennis courts on Lake Flower Avenue.

The front returns winter to the region after the second major thaw this January, in which temperatures in the high 50s Wednesday melted most of the snow. Rain fell Wednesday and overnight, turning to snow around 8 a.m. today.
