Upstate New York hit by heavy snow and frigid temperatures


ALBANY, New York — A frigid winter storm expected to dump a foot or more of snow in some areas made roads slick from Buffalo to the Hudson Valley and closed schools across the region.

Up to eight inches fell in Buffalo by Monday morning with heavy snowfall spanning the state. Snow was expected to continue through the day and temperatures were in the teens and single digits.

Up to 16 inches of snow was forecast for the eastern Catskill Mountains, and northern and central Taconics.

The New York State Department of Transportation has shifted 40 plows and 91 operators and supervisors to the Hudson Valley and Long Island to assist with snow removal in those regions. Other crews are ready to be moved as needed to deal with heavier accumulations.
