The National Weather Service has posted winter storm warnings through Friday morning in most of the state. Temperatures are in the single digits or below zero, with the wind making it feel as cold as 20-30 below zero in some areas.

The storm dumped up to 18 inches of snow in the Rochester area by late Thursday, while up to 14 inches is reported Friday morning in parts of eastern New York.

At the Capital City Rescue Mission in Albany, officials say they have 214 homeless people staying at the shelter Friday morning. The facility typically has about 200 people staying each night.
