WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - According to the National Weather Service, snowfall in Deferiet during this winter storm is on par with the accumulation in Buffalo.

Deferiet saw 50.8 inches of snowfall, while the Buffalo Airport records 51.5 inches of snow.

Watertown and Sackets Harbor also saw snowfall on par with the Buffalo area, recording 46.4 and 46.3 inches respectively.

Those totals exceed most of the Buffalo area as their second highest recorded snowfall was in Lake View, with 44.3 inches. Even Orchard Park, home to the Buffalo Bills, saw nearly 10 inches less than Watertown, recording 37 inches.
