CAPITAL REGION - Snow blanketed the region for the latest time Tuesday, causing slick roads and slowing commutes.
The National Weather Service anticipated as much as six inches of snow to fall across much of the region, with pockets of up to eight inches.
As a result, a winter weather advisory was in effect for the entire region until 10 p.m. tonight. Officials were warning of a potentially slick commute home from work this evening.
Road conditions caused drivers to slide most of the day. In one case, pictured above, a driver unable to stop for a car in front of her, instead drove her car up an embankment near the Curry Road railroad overpass and trapped by a guardrail, police said. The driver was unhurt.
Through 4:26 p.m., the highest snowfall totals reported in the immediate Capital Region belonged to Cobleskill, 4 inches reported at 12:46 p.m., and East Greenbush, which reported 4 at 3:16 p.m. Only Greenville Center in Greene County reported more in the greater Capital Region, at 4.5 inches at 11:32 a.m.
