The snow has arrived at the WGNA studios in Schenectady, New York.  According to News 10/ABC's Steve Caporizzo we will see 2-4 inches by our evening commute with totals topping out around 3-6 inches by this evening.  Unlike our other 2012 winter storm predictions, it looks like this one is actually going to happen, and several schools have decided to close early.

YNN has reported that several schools like Amsterdam, Cobleskill, Ichabod Crane, Ravena, Middleburgh, and Saugerties are closing early today.  Meanwhile, several schools like Saratoga Springs and East Greenbush have already cancelled after school activities.  We have a complete list of updated school closings and the latest weather information.

By the way, don't forget to play our 'First Flakes' contest!
