NEW YORK STATE -- Much of the northeast, including New York, is bracing for a winter storm, and if you plan to travel at all the rest of the week, the snow and bitter cold could impact your trip as roads could be slippery.
The storm will have snow falling through Friday morning in our viewing area. Temperatures could be well below zero for northern parts of the region, especially at night. But the snow could cause problems for travelers especially downstate.
In a media briefing, Governor Andrew Cuomo said the storm could put a strain on resources statewide depending on the severity.The governor says if needed, he has reached out to surrounding states for assistance. He hopes neighbors will do the same.
Cuomo said, "If there is a storm and there are people in vulnerable positions in your community or on your block you may want to check on them."
The State Emergency Operations Center will be activated at 10 a.m. Thursday to monitor the storm.
