Residents in a wide swath of upstate New York are digging out from under up to 2 feet of snow dumped by a lingering nor’easter.

The National Weather Service says the two-day storm dropped 1 to 2 feet of snow, with higher elevations getting the most snow. A winter storm warning expired at 7:00 a.m. Thursday, but a winter weather advisory is in effect for much of western New York until 4:00 a.m. Friday.

About 12,000 utility customers, mostly in the Albany area, remain without power.
