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.

The Bottom Line: Account Support e-mails

Updated: Monday, August 26 2013, 09:55 PM EDT
ALBANY -- It offers account support, but really, is trying to gain access your account!
A Bottom Line Alert about a vague, yet invasive e-mail going around - which CBS 6 viewer Chris let Dori Marlin know about.
It's sent to "undisclosed-recipients" - from "Support Team" - the subject says "Account Maintenance/Upgrade" - and the body of it asks for all kinds of information, including your name, username, and password.
It also says "your e-mail address is about to be de-activated" and contains a link to contact the "Maintenance/Upgrade" team.
Dori checked the e-mail out against criteria from the Federal Trade Commission, and it turns out, the e-mail does fit the profile of a phishing e-mail.
If you happen to receive it, the FTC says don't reply, and don't click on anything.  Instead, delete the message immediately - and remember that legitimate companies don't ask for that information, via email.The Bottom Line: Account Support e-mails
