People across the state brought out the snow brushes and ice scrapers, as winter has shown it wasn’t quite done yet.

A cold front that swept across the region Tuesday has dumped 2 to 4 inches of snow in some areas of upstate New York.

Roads and highways are mostly clear but many upstate residents dealt with ice- and snow-covered vehicles.

The change in the weather has sent temperatures plunging from highs in the mid-50s on Tuesday to the 20s and even the teens in some upstate areas.

Forecasters say the warm-up begins today, with temperatures climbing into the 40s and hitting the 50s by the weekend.
