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

The next storm will spread snow into the region today mainly between the hours of 3-5 pm, with a transition to sleet then freezing rain in many areas prior to midnight.  This is likely to make for a slow and messy evening commute. 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.

E-Waste Collection Event

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

GUILDERLAND -- Earth Day is coming up on Monday, but an event this weekend helped to not only protect the environment - but also your Bottom Line.


CBS 6 teamed up with Tri City Rentals and eLot Electronics Recycling to trash your tech for you, at Saturday's E-Waste Collection Event.


It was held at five different area locations, including Woodlake Apartments in Guilderland.


Items collected included old televisions, batteries and light bulbs - but also things like computers and cell phones - which harm your wallet, if you're not careful.


"As technology's evolving, it's extremely easy to steal someone's identity or take information off a hard drive," says Murray Massry of Tri City Rentals. "There's a lot of third parties that will remove information off a hard drive and they won't ask for identification that matches up to that hard drive."


But in this case, rest assured.


The companies say they follow the proper regulations, making sure that all hard drives and data storage devices are disposed of, and done so the right way.


"E-lot Recycling is mandated by the state, and they will be fined if the items are not destroyed within 'x' amount of time," Massry says.


The event was free, and open to the public.
