    Blood Moon eclipse 2014

    A lunar eclipse known as a red moon or "blood moon" was visible in the Tristate area on Tuesday.  It started early in the morning and was the first of four such lunar eclipses over the next year and a half. The moon turns red during this type of eclipse because the sunlight is refracted, similar to the way it is bent during a sunset.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Snow and bone-chilling temperatures are greeting morning commuters across New York on the first work day of 2014, with some upstate areas expected to get more than a foot of snow by the weekend.

Up to 5 inches of snow has fallen in eastern New York by 8 a.m. Thursday, but the National Weather Service says some areas from Buffalo to Albany could get up to 14 inches by the time the storm subsides on Friday.

Forecasters say Thursday's high temperatures aren't likely to hit double digits in many areas, while the highs across the North Country will remain below zero throughout the day. Windy conditions and lows well below zero will make it feel like minus-30 in some parts of the Adirondacks Thursday night and Friday morning.
