Syracuse (WSYR/AP) - Up to a foot of snow has been dumped across parts of Upstate New York as much of the region deals with its first major storm of the season.

According to the NewsChannel 9 Storm Team, the Oswego County community of Hannibal has reported the most substantial total in Central New York with 14 inches of snow.

Elsewhere, the National Weather Service says snowfall totals range from 4 inches at Ogdensburg on the Canadian border to 12 inches in Allegany County in the Southern Tier.

The Buffalo area has received up to 11 inches from the storm that featured wind gusts of 30 mph when it hit western New York Wednesday afternoon.

The weather service says up to 16 inches could fall in some upstate areas, with 20 inches possible in higher elevations, by the time the storm begins diminishing later Thursday.

State police report about a dozen accidents on the Thruway system, none of them fatal.
