Digging Out From Big Storm Underway Across Upstate NY
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Meteorologists say digging out from the nor'easter that dumped 2 to 3 feet of snow across parts of upstate New York will be made more difficult by blustery conditions and plunging wind chills.
The National Weather Service says the snowfall totals from Tuesday's all-day storm ranged from 18 inches in Rochester to 3 feet in the Mohawk Valley and the Binghamton area. Other areas such as the Catskills, Hudson Valley and parts of the Adirondacks received 24 to 32 inches.
The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for a region stretching from Lake Erie to the Adirondacks, with snow showers and winds gusting to 40 mph expected in some areas. The wind chill will make it feel like the single digits or below zero.
Schools from Buffalo to the Mohawk Valley are closed for a second day.
