SYRACUSE, NY (WYSR-TV) A late-season April Nor’easter dumped up to a foot or more of heavy wet snow across parts of Central New York late Monday night into Tuesday morning.
This led to a slow Tuesday morning commute and numerous power outages for many in Tompkins, Cortland, Chenango, Madison, Oneida, and southern Onondaga counties (and most of the Southern Tier) where the most snow fell.
NYSEG’s Manager of Corporate Communications Julio Saenz talked with NewsChannel 9 Tuesday and gave update to those were left without power. You can watch it in the video player below:
While those in the higher elevations of approximately 1,000ft or more had very heavy snow, other areas including Syracuse and the surrounding suburbs, especially north and west, saw much lighter snowfall totals with hardly any accumulating on the pavement.
Here’s a list of snowfall reports from the National Weather Service as of 9am Tuesday:
