Snow Develops Tuesday Afternoon - Transitions to Sleet and Freezing Rain at Night

The next storm will spread snow into the region from the mid to late afternoon on Tuesday with a transition to sleet then freezing rain in many areas prior to midnight.  Snow accumulations prior to the switch will be variable and dependent on the exact timing of the changeover but in general  will range from 2"-4" in most spots.  Locally 3"-6" of snow will be possible in the Mohawk valley, Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont and the Berkshires where snow is more likely to last longer.  0.10" to 0.15" of ice accretion will be possible into early Wednesday morning on top of the snow.

$60,000 grass seed being planted at the Capitol - 04/11/13

New York State Office of General Services employees were out in the West Capital Park, Monday, planting grass seed on the dirt patches. Last week an OGS spokesman said the pro-gun rally held outside the Capitol, back in February, caused $30,000 in damage and will take another $30,000 to repair.

Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin,R-Melrose, was critical of the OGS figures so he wrote a letter to Commissioner RoAnn Destito asking for a line by line breakdown of the costs.

Via CBS6 and my social media pages, many pro-gun enthusiasts fought back on the claim they ruined the lawn. Many said the lawn was already muddy when they arrive on a rainy February 28th day when the rally was held.

State police estimated the crowd that day at "just over 5,000 at it's peak".
