A winter storm brought around 3 to 6 inches of snow across the Rochester area overnight into early Thursday morning, with the heavier amounts south and east of the city. The bigger accumulations were in places like the Southern Tier.

More than 3 feet of snow fell in areas near Binghamton, and there were also heavier amounts of snow in the Finger Lakes, and eastern parts of the state including Albany, and especially downstate.

New York City was expecting up to a foot of snow, and other parts of the East Coast got slammed with the powerful nor'easter. 

For the immediate Rochester metro, News 8 meteorologist Josh Nichols says the snow is tapering off on Thursday, with a little light snow possible during the day and a high of 29.

The Winter Weather Advisory for Monroe and nearby counties was canceled at about 6:30 a.m.

The Winter Storm Warning  for some Southern Tier and Finger Lakes counties also was canceled early Thursday morning, but stayed in effect a bit longer for some counties in central New York.
