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

The next storm will spread snow into the region today from the mid to late afternoon, 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: Military & Veteran Scams

Updated: Friday, October 11 2013, 06:00 PM EDT
ALBANY -- A Bottom Line Alert from New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, for our military service members and veterans.
The A.G. says their lifestyle and line of work make them more susceptible to fraud, and now more attractive to scammers.

For example, there's the phone scam CBS 6's Dori Marlin has warned about before, in which the caller pretends to be the VA phishing for veterans' personal information.

There's also financial fraud, in which banks and mortgage lenders may try to take advantage of a current member's active military service.

The simple solution from Schneiderman is for members and veterans to take their time with any purchase or investment decision, resist any high-pressure tactics, and know all the policies.
