Significant Winter Storm Possible From Monday Night Through Tuesday

An area of low pressure will track to our south through Monday.  Some light snow should develop through Monday afternoon and evening as a result.  The low pressure will then rapidly intensify off of the Northeast coast Monday night and Tuesday.  Uncertainty remains as to the exact track of this low pressure, but if it tracks close enough to the coast, portions of the area could see a significant snowfall.

Touring the Gilboa Dam construction

GILBOA -- New York City Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Carter Strickland toured the ongoing construction at the Gilboa Dam on Tuesday.
Officials were able to check out the progress being made by a $400 million project designed to improve the state of the dam, including a new release tunnel around the dam from the Schoharie Reservoir into the Schoharie Creek.
Reconstruction of the dam is the largest public works project in Schoharie County, and one of the largest in the Catskills.
"It's time to refresh it and invest in it again.  It's time to make it stay strong so that's what we're doing.  We're refacing the had a lot of erosion weathering, so we're taking 234 million pounds of concrete on it.  We're tying it with additional anchors to keep it secure," said Strickland.
The improvements to the dam were supposed to be complete in 2016, but officials said it could be completed two years early.  The project has created about 125 local jobs, and the dam has been in service for 85 years.
