Developing Storm: Snow To Increase in Coverage and Intensity After Midnight

A major Nor'easter now developing off the mid Atlantic coast will put eastern New York and western New England on its western side through Tuesday.  Snow will become steadier from SE to NW across the region after midnight and towards daybreak Tuesday with snowfall of varying intensity through Tuesday evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 20-30 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions into Tuesday night. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 8"-14" are expected.

Casino rezoning tabled by Schenectady City Council

SCHENECTADY -- The Schenectady City Council tabled a vote Monday to rezone the old ALCO site to allow a casino. It made the decision because one member was absent and the council wanted to wait until all members were present.

The Galesi Group announced last week it paid the state a $1 million license application fee to potentially bring a casino to its new Mohawk Harbor development. City council members said the rezoning wasnt the same as a resolution of support for the project.

It's a very preliminary thing. Its almost like a step to get it out of the way should we decide as a council to go forward, said Councilwoman Leesa Perazzo.

Schenectady County residents in November narrowly voted against the proposition to bring casinos to New York. Some city leaders said while they still want to see a full proposal they are interested in the casino.

A casino is going to go up in the capital region potentially somewhere. I think the benefits of it in terms of financially, the jobs its going to create, I think that's very important, said Councilwoman Margaret King. Of course weve got to look at the downside of it, the addition and things like that, but my understanding is whatever proposal we get will address those issues.
