Slick Roads Overnight As Steadier Snow Tapers Off - Still Some Occasional Light Snow

A weak area of low pressure that has been producing mainly light snow this evening will push farther away from the region as we work into the late night hours. The steady,  light snow will be tapering to more scattered areas of light snow, with only minimal additional accumulations for the overnight hours. Still, expect slow and slick travel conditions to be around for the duration of the night.  Most areas have seen from 1-3" of snowfall. Lingering flurries will be around into Monday morning.

Bottom Line: National Grid Savings

Updated: Wednesday, March 20 2013, 01:55 PM EDT
SCHENECTADY -- Hearing what you, the customers, have to say about proposed rate changes in your National Grid bills.

New York's Public Service Commission held a public hearing Tuesday, about the utility's 3-year plan.

The Bottom Line for your wallet?

CBS 6's Dori Marlin found out, you "might" see some savings in 2013.

For electric customers, the utility is looking for an increase in delivery rates of 5.6%.

But, with a surcharge that's expiring, it claims customers' total electric bills would go down by 1.7% this year.

Natural gas customers would see delivery rates go up by 4.8%, while their total bills would go up by 2.4%.

National Grid spokesperson Patrick Stella tells Dori, that's only for the first year.

"Then it would go up each year after that, it would bring it back to about stable." 

Stella went on to say, "That's still a decrease over where it was a couple years ago."

The PSC will continue holding a series of hearings this month, throughout Upstate New York.

It expects to make a decision in March.Bottom Line: National Grid Savings
