It is winter in Albany after all and so we shouldn't be surprised when we get snow but alas we generally are. The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Winter Weather Advisory.

It looks like we may get 7-9 inches depending on where you live. Remember to drive safe and if you have an elderly neighbor go check them. Don't let them shovel either - it's dangerous! Be a good neighbor and lend a hand.

We have up to date weather as well as closings for you to check.
