RICHARD O'HANLON: Currently at 10 o'clock. It is snowing heavily in Potsdam. We've got 2 inches of snow on the ground officially as of 10 o'clock. It is still snowing heavily. We're expecting anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow before this all pulls out around 8 o'clock tonight. As you can see, we're pretty much of a late April winter wonderland here in Potsdam. As you can see, snow on the ground. This is Rick O'Hanlon reporting from Potsdam, New York. Make it a safe, healthy day. And drive carefully.

Good afternoon. This is Rick O'Hanlon reporting from Potsdam, New York. The time as is 12:15. And it's still snowing here in Potsdam, although the snow has diminished quite a bit since earlier since 10 o'clock this morning. As you can see, we have [? been ?] starting to see a little bit of filtered sun coming through here in Potsdam. The traffic is moving. The roads are just wet. But if you go up into the mountains just south of Potsdam, the roads could be snow covered and pretty slushy. And not all of them are plowed.

So if anybody is traveling south of the village of Potsdam, we might want to drive extremely carefully. Because the snow is still coming down fairly heavily in the higher elevations of the Adirondacks. This is Rick O'Hanlon reporting from Potsdam, New York. Make it a safe day.
