How much snow fell in Rochester and Buffalo NY

The National Weather Service in Buffalo shared some storm totals around the Rochester region following Monday's storm.

In all, 11.5 inches of snow fell at the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport since the storm first started falling in Rochester Sunday evening, according to the Weather Service. During the same time frame, 19.2 inches fell at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, as of 1 a.m. Tuesday.

In addition, less than a half inch of lake effect snow fell overnight at the airport early Tuesday morning. The airport, said Weather Service Meteorologist Jon Hitchcock, had more sleet than some northern communities in Monroe County, which kept Rochester's snow total lower than some other parts of the county.
