ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — 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 from the Finger Lakes to the Adirondacks and the Albany area, with higher elevations getting the most snow. Between 20 and 24 inches is reported Thursday morning in parts of Onondaga, Madison, Chenango, Schenectady and Clinton counties.

A winter storm warning expires at 7 a.m., but a winter weather advisory is in effect for much of western New York until 4 a.m. Friday.

The Thruway has lifted its ban on tandem trucks traveling a 147-mile stretch of Interstate 90 between Exit 32 near Utica and Exit 48 at Batavia.

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