Heavy snow is expected during the afternoon and evening commute, with accumulation of 5 to 7 inches expected.

A narrow band of lake effect snow is expected to dissipate and move off to the east by the afternoon.

"A system moving in from the Southwest and another weaker one across northern NY state is going to combine, and may bring us a period of some snow showers - or even a little bit of light snow in the afternoon", WJZ's Bob Turk said. Plan on hard travel conditions later tonight as snow redevelops. "Despite the light amounts, the timing (and the subfreezing temperatures) suggests that there will be impacts with the morning commute on Thursday". Low around 22. There will be a 20 percent chance or snow at night. Highs in the mid to upper 20s in most areas. Overnight lows into Friday morning will be in the teens for much of the state.

Grand Rapids chief: Handcuffing of girl, 11, was disturbing
Police said they were looking for her 40-year-old aunt, who had been accused of stabbing another relative nearby. Police said the women were not armed. "When you're dealing with an 11-year-old, it's inappropriate".
