Snow Develops This Afternoon - Transitions to Sleet and Freezing Rain at Night

The next storm will spread snow into the region today mainly between the hours of 3-5 pm, with a transition to sleet then freezing rain in many areas prior to midnight.  This is likely to make for a slow and messy evening commute. Snow accumulations prior to the switch will be variable and dependent on the exact timing of the changeover but in general  will range from 2"-4" in most spots.  Locally 3"-6" of snow will be possible in the Mohawk valley, Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont and the Berkshires where snow is more likely to last longer.  0.10" to 0.15" of ice accretion will be possible into early Wednesday morning on top of the snow.

June 13 - Cohoes Soapbox Derby

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT

On this day in our history, a local milestone in the women's liberation movement: one of the first girl's in the country to participate in a soap box derby.


A two-year court case in Virginia resulted in a girl in that state being allowed to be included in the races.


In cohoes, 13-year-old Debbie Smith would compete with 138 boys.


She wasn't allowed any special treatment. She built her own car, with the help of Paiul Wheeler, an Industrial Arts teacher at Cohoes Middle School. 


Debbie named her car the, "Century Two."
