The fierce storm that pounded parts of New York with prodigious snow totals finally relented in the most affected areas Sunday, but it was expected to bring treacherous travel conditions to localities that had been largely spared.

While highways reopened and many travel bans were lifted on some cities and towns east of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario that had been getting blanketed by the lake-effect snow since Thursday, other regions were due to get several inches of snow by Monday.

A​t least 3 inches of additional snow was likely to fall along the I-90 corridor in western New York, northwest Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio, said, and as much as 6 inches were possible over parts of central New York.

“This has been a historic storm,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a briefing Sunday. “Without a doubt, this is one for the record books.”

Hochul deployed about 70 members of the National Guard to help with snow removal in some of the hardest-hit areas and is seeking a federal disaster declaration for them.

Snowfall totals from the storm, which began Thursday night, were among the highest ever recorded in some areas. The Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park, home of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, reported 77 inches; the town of Natural Bridge recorded 72.3 inches.  

NFL officials on Thursday moved Sunday’s Bills game to Detroit’s Ford Field because of the weather.

The accumulations “would be on the order of historic not only for any time of year but for any part of the country,” National Weather Service meteorologist Frank Pereira said.
