Travel will be dicey in places on Thursday as our region is brushed by a major snowstorm that will bombard New England, but the biggest impact for upstate New York will likely be the cold and winds that follow the storm.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the region from 7 a.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. Friday, and the agency predicted 3 to 6 inches of snow for the Glens Falls area starting Thursday morning. More was expected to the east in Washington County and Vermont, and that could change if the storm moves farther west than forecast.

The storm will lead to stiff winds as it pulls to the east, and cold temperatures Friday and Saturday that will be more troublesome than the past week. Saturday's high temperature is not expected to top zero, and Sunday's low could approach 25 below in Glens Falls and 30 below in points to the north.

Temperatures will moderate during the day Sunday, with another winter storm taking aim at the region Monday and Tuesday.
