The snow has stopped falling on Thursday morning, but it was a busy night for plows after nearly six inches fell overnight. YNN's brad Vivacqua has the latest.

CICERO, N.Y. -- On Wednesday, it was the Tug Hill getting pounded by snow. Three to fourr feet of snow are estimated.

Overnight, the weather system shifted south and brought the lake effect snow to the areas of Cicero, Brewerton, and Central Square. Several inches of snow fell in those areas.

Although the impact wasn't as bad as the Tug Hill, it still meant a long night for plow drivers. In Cicero, crews hit the road at 3 a.m. to start the clean up. According to the highway foreman, it gets busy with so much ground to cover.

"Today we had to plow and salt. We called everybody in, we got started a little after 3 a.m. We have 16 routes that cover about 130 miles of town roads. Trying to get it done before school and rush hour," explained Dave Christian, Cicero Town Highway Foreman.

The weather is supposed to clear up in the Syracuse area, but parts of Jefferson County and the Tug Hill could get another round of snow. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
