Snow and Gusty Wind Today - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A Nor'easter  is expected to impact the region today, but the impact around the Capital Region looks to be on the lighter side, as the storm takes a more Easterly track. Snow will become steadier from SE to NW this morning, with snowfall of varying intensity through this afternoon and evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 15-20 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions at times through late tonight. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 2-6" are expected, with higher amounts across western New England.

Obama gives Colonie Supervisor 'umbrella escort'

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:23 PM EDT

COLONIE -- Town Supervisor Paula Mahan was able to not only see President Obama's speech on Tuesday - she actually shared an umbrella with him on the tarmac.

President Obama tried to keep Mahan out of the elements, after her umbrella inverted from a gust of wind.  She told CBS6 that it was quite a moment.

"The President came down and was just so gracious and was real happy to be here, and of course with the pouring rain, he put his arm around me and help the umbrella so I could stay as dry as I could," said Mahan.  "Just a wonderful moment."
