More than 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.
    
The National Weather Service says snowfall totals late Thursday morning range from 11 inches at Ogdensburg on the Canadian border in northern New York to 15 inches in Wales, outside Buffalo.
    
The Rochester and Syracuse areas also have received more than 10 inches from the storm that featured wind gusts of 30 mph when it hit western and central 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 Thursday evening.
    
State police report multiple accidents on the Thruway system, none of them fatal.
