Snow and Gusty Wind on Tuesday - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A Nor'easter  is expected to impact the region today, but the impact around the Capital Region looks to be on the lighter side, as the storm takes a more Easterly track. Snow will become steadier from SE to NW this morning, with snowfall of varying intensity through this afternoon and evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 15-20 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions at times through late tonight. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 2-6" are expected, with higher amounts across western New England.

Cooperstown gearing up for big induction weekend

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -- Businesses in the upstate New York home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame are gearing up for the biggest weekend of the summer tourist season.

Cooperstown is expected to be packed with tens of thousands of people for Sunday's induction ceremony featuring Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre.

The Hall of Fame is celebrating its 75th anniversary, and this weekend's festivities will likely be one of the largest crowds ever for an induction weekend. Two weekends in the 1990s drew more than 40,000, but the 2007 induction weekend brought in more than 75,000. Hall of Fame officials say the average crowd for an induction ceremony is about 15,000.

Last year's numbers were way down because no living person was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
