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.

3-vehicle crash closes Hoosick road

HOOSICK, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say three people have been injured in a three-vehicle crash that has closed a stretch of an eastern New York road.

The Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened around 6:30 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of Routes 7 and 22 in the town of Hoosick, on the Vermont border 30 miles northeast of Albany.

Deputies say a car, a tractor-trailer and a van were involved. Police say a newspaper delivery van driven by Fred Stace of Hancock, Mass., crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with an 18-wheel flat-bed truck. Stace is in critical condition at Albany Medical Center Hospital. Two other people were also taken to hospitals.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The section of Route 7 closed by the accident is expected to reopen early Thursday afternoon.
