A snowstorm will affect the Albany, N.Y., area and the Hudson Valley right into Sunday morning. Expect slippery travel with the potential for some roads to close for a brief time.

While some warmer air will cause sleet and rain to mix in along the I-95 mid-Atlantic and in southeastern New England, the storm will be all snow in the Albany area.

For a time Saturday night, the snow came down at a rate of nearly 4 inches per hour. This made for visibility to be reduced to just a few hundred feet, making for difficult travel conditions.

The storm has generally brought 8 to 12 inches of snow to the area with locally higher amounts where the heaviest snow set up overnight.
