Pockets of Freezing Rain May Lead to Slick Spots

Pockets of freezing rain will remain possible into early afternoon for parts of the area. Areas most prone to slick surfaces include the Adirondacks, Mohawk Valley, Catskills, Berkshires and southern Vermont. Any glazing will be light but only a small amount of ice on an untreated surface can make it slippery. As temperatures warm above freezing through the afternoon, all precipitation will change over to just plain rain.

The Bottom Line : Another Phone Scam Warning

Updated: Friday, October 4 2013, 09:36 PM EDT
WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A Bottom Line Alert about a phone scam making the rounds.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office says they received reports of two separate suspicious phone calls Wednesday night, in which the caller posed as police.

In both cases, officials say the caller identified himself as "Detective Abraham" from an unknown police department - and the caller ID showed up as "V of G Police Department."
Police say the caller told whoever picked up the phone that they owed money, and that a warrant was out for their arrest.
This is very similar to other phone scams that CBS 6's Dori Marlin has warned about in the past.

The "real" officials tell Dori, they never collect money owed via phone - so if you get one of the calls, don't give out any money or personal information, and instead hang up immediately.
