LATHAM, N.Y. – A snow storm made its way to the Capital Region, and snow plows were visible on the roadways starting Wednesday night.

Light snow began to fall Wednesday night, and crews started plowing roads around 9 p.m.

Workers and plow drivers with the Department of Transportation rotated shifts all night into early Thursday morning. They were at the Latham Yard to load their plows with salt from the salt barn.

The salt barn holds 1,500 tons of salt for crews to spread along the roads.

The snow is expected to continue falling until Friday morning. Snow fall predictions call for 10 to 15 inches of snow overall in the Capital Region.

Many communities have issued snow emergencies pending the snow storm, and many school districts were closed Thursday.
