At 345 PM EST, a large area of moderate to heavy snow was located
over much of eastern New York from around the Capital District
southward and western New England, including Interstates 90, 87, and
787. The snow is causing reduced visibility and snow covered roads.
Snowfall rates of one half to one inch per hour will result in
hazardous travel conditions.

THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING HIGHWAYS...
 Interstate 90 between exits 8 and 1s, and between exits 8 and 6-5A.
 Interstate 87 between exits 1 and 2 , near exit 4, and between exits
2-4 and 4-5.
 Interstate 787 between exits 2 and 8-7.

Visibilities will drop quickly to less than a half mile in this area
of heavy snow. Conditions can deteriorate rapidly in winter weather
situations. Be prepared for snow or ice covered roads. Slow down and
allow extra time when traveling.
