... Snow squalls expected today across eastern New York and
western New England...

Snow squalls will track southeast across eastern New York and
western New England from late morning through the afternoon. The
snow squalls will first move through the Mohawk Valley and Lake
George Saratoga region late morning through early afternoon, then
across the capital district early to mid afternoon, and the Mid
Hudson valley into the Berkshires and Litchfield Hills mid to late
afternoon. Interstates 90, 88 and 87 will all be affected by snow
squalls at some point this afternoon.

Affected locations will see rapidly changing weather and Road
conditions, with brief heavy snow and gusty winds. A quick snow
accumulation of 1 or 2 inches is possible along with near zero
visibilities. Be prepared for areas of blowing and drifting snow.
This could lead to temporary whiteout conditions and the potential
for dangerous driving conditions. Icy roads are also expected. If
you are traveling and encounter adverse winter driving
conditions... reduce speed and make sure headlights are on.
