Some Capital Region counties are under a state of emergency as a winter storm moves through the area.

The National Weather Service says while snow arrived later than expected Monday, many spots are still likely to receive several inches of precipitation before things finally wind down. Due to strong wind gusts that could cause blowing snow, people are being asked to stay off the roads so crews can keep them clean. Anyone flying out of the area Tuesday should also check on the status of their flight before heading to the airport.

AccuWeather forecast:

Tuesday - Cloudy, very windy and cold with occasional snow accumulating another 1-3 inches, storm total snowfall will be around 10 inches in most places with blowing and drifting snow, high 27.

Tuesday night into Wednesday - Windy and cold with plenty of clouds and a couple of snow showers, low Tuesday night 22, high Wednesday near 30.

Thursday - Plenty of sunshine, high 33
