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.

The Bottom Line: PCNY Phone Call

Updated: Thursday, March 13 2014, 10:21 PM EDT
NISKAYUNA -- A mysterious phone call from a police organization is raising questions about whether it's a scam.

A Bottom Line Alert after CBS 6 viewer Ken in Troy got in touch, asking Dori Marlin about the call.

Ken said it was coming from the phone number (516) 986-2410 - which is out of Farmingdale, New York.

The caller said his name is Joe, and he was calling on behalf of the Police Conference of New York looking for donations.

Dori
did an online search and found lots of recent complaints from people
locally, saying they've received many of these same phone calls.

She
also found the Police Conference of New York "is" a legitimate
organization, based in Albany - and spoke with its President, who says
the calls are also legit.

He tells Dori, they use professional fundraisers to solicit donations - and Joe works for one of them.

So The Bottom Line: If you get one of those phone calls, it is "not" a scam.The Bottom Line: PCNY Phone Call
