Weather Alert

Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Tonight

Low pressure will rapidly intensify in the Guld of Maine tonight causing the wind to increase from the west-northwest in gusts from 35-40 mph driving a bitterly cold air mass into the region.  Temperatures will plunge to near or below zero with wind chills later tonight through Saturday morning dropping to a range of -15 to -25 at times.  Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and gloves and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can set develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces. Pets should be brought in - if you're cold they are too.

COLONIE -- Some people got a once in a lifetime opportunity at Albany International Airport during President Obama's visit to the Capital Region.

Kingston resident Jean Jacobs and her family got a tour inside of Air Force One.  Jean's son, Daniel, is the Chief of Security for the presidential aircraft, and he was able to get his family inside the most photographed airplane in the world.

"It was magnificent.  We got to sit in the pilot chairs, got to see the presidential quarters, his Oval Office in the Air Force One," Jacobs said.  "It was like an estate in the air.  Absolutely fabulous."

Jacobs said she wasn't allowed to take photographs inside Air Force One due to security reasons, but she told CBS6 that the carpeting is color coded.  Blue carpeting meant that her family was allowed to see the area, but she could not cross onto any brown carpeting.
