NEW YORK — Snow totals vary wildly in the metropolitan New York City area.

National Weather Service meteorologist Adrienne Leptich says the “big winner” is New Fairfield, Connecticut, with a whopping 26.8 inches.

Franklin Lakes, New Jersey got 24 inches.

In New York’s Rockland County, Sloatsburg got 26 inches.

On Long Island, the accumulations ranged from around 3 to 9 inches.

Leptich says New York City “wasn’t as exciting.” The biggest report is 4.7 inches in Little Neck, Queens.

Leptich says the city’s snow was too wet to accumulate much, and fell during the warmest part of the day.
