Wintry Mixed Precipitation Causes Slow and Slick Travel Through the Night

A rapid transition from snow to sleet will continue across the region this evening with an ultimate switch to freezing rain in most locations before midnight.  With the fast sleet transition snowfall totals will be reduced with many areas seeing 1"-3" with localized amounts of 3"-6" in the southern Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont, the Berkshires, and the Taconics prior to midnight with up to 0.10" of a glaze of icing on top of the snow.  The storm is a fast mover with the most if not all of the precipitation over by or shortly before daybreak.  Slow and slick travel conditions should be expected through the pre-dawn hours with much improved road conditions by the Wednesday morning commute.

Don and Diane Blakeslee

This week's Saturday Shout Out is for two love birds: Don and Diane Blakeslee from Clifton Park, NY.

Don and Diane just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 25th.

Their children took them to dinner at Verdile's in Troy. This must have been incredibly special for them because this is where Don took Diane on their very FIRST date. The fun continued the very next day when the entire family gathered to celebrate Don and Diane's amazing milestone.

Don and Diane have lived in the Capital Region all of their lives. Don retired from GE in Waterford, and Diane retired from the U.S. Post Office in Clifton Park.

50 years is a huge accomplishment. The commitment and love these two share for one another is beyond beautiful, it's amazing.

Don and Diane have been remarkable role models and continue to show their kids the value of a strong work ethic, hard work, being kind to others, and never giving up, especially when it comes to love.

There is no denying this family is close and surrounded by love, and that is worth showcasing.

Don and Diane congratulations on your love and your beautiful family, CBS6 wishes you good health, and many more years of happiness.

Don and Diane were nominated by their daughter, Dawn Blakeslee.
