Bitter cold has returned to upstate New York on the heels of the blizzard that dumped nearly 1½ feet of snow on western areas.
    
The National Weather Service says high winds and temperatures in the teens and single digits will drive the wind chill well below zero Thursday, a day after a blizzard closed schools and highways in most of the western half of the upstate region.
    
The weather service says the storm dumped up to 17 inches of snow on parts of western New York.
    
Blowing snow caused numerous accidents on the Thruway, with sections of the highway between Syracuse and Buffalo closed for several hours. The ban on tandem trucks between the Albany area and the Pennsylvania border in western New York has been lifted.
