ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An early spring cold front is bringing snow and gusty winds to upstate New York after the region had one of its mildest winters on record.

The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories from the Buffalo area to Albany, effective until Monday afternoon. Up to 5 inches of snow has fallen in western areas of the state, where forecasters are calling for up to 10 inches.

Wind gusts of up to 30 mph have been reported in western New York.

Authorities are blaming white-out conditions for a multi-vehicle crash that occurred on Interstate 88 in Otsego County on Sunday afternoon.

State police say a tour bus, three tractor-trailers and eight passenger vehicles were involved in the pileup in westbound lanes in the town of Maryland, 55 miles west of Albany.

Only minor injuries were reported.
