Snow cleared from a parking lot sits high along in front of a sidewalk near houses in the city of Syracuse, March 15, 2023.

The Syracuse region is waking up to piles of snow that a late-season storm dumped across the region.

The National Weather Service's snow reports from the last 24 hours show at least one part of our neighboring Madison County experienced nearly 2 feet of snow. Areas closer to the city of Syracuse saw about half that, but still a significant tally.

A bar graph shows the snowfall totals from a mid-march nor'easter for locations across Central New York: Jamesville: 18.7 inches; Syracuse: 10.1 inches; Marcellus: 12.5 inches; Fairmount: 11 inches; Waterloo: 7.9 inches; North Syracuse: 10.6 inches; Cazenovia: 22 inches; Chittenango: 13.5 inches; Manlius: 14.3 inches; Fulton: 6.5 inches.
