Traffic slowly moves on Main Street in Albion late Thursday afternoon after a snowstorm gripped the area. Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a “state of emergency” for all of New York on Thursday and earlier today, shutting down some major roads in the state.

Today will be colder than Thursday, with temperatures in the single digits. The wind chill will make it feel like -10 to -20. The National Weather Service urged people to use “common sense” when they go outside today.

“Dress appropriately for the bitter wind chills,” NWS advised. “This includes dressing in layers and minimizing exposed skin. Frost bite and hypothermia are possible in as short as 15 to 30 minutes if you are exposed to these very cold temperatures without proper protection.”
