BOSTON (CBS)- Weather watchers say up to a foot of snow fell in parts of southern New England as the latest winter storm moved through the Northeast.

The storm had ended in the region by Sunday morning and dry weather was expected for days, although strong winds may chill the bone.

Meteorologist Frank Nocera of the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass., said six to 12 inches of snow fell from Saturday afternoon and overnight in Rhode Island, eastern Connecticut and eastern Massachusetts, including Foxborough where the New England Patriots play.

The exception was at Boston and the Cape Cod area where rain was mixed in with snow. There two to four inches fell.
 
Many residents lost power after wet snow piled up on power lines.

In New York, the Albany County Airport Authority said passengers were stranded when their plane skidded into a snow bank at the upstate New York airport and became stuck. No one was injured in yesterday's accident; the 66 passengers and four crew members aboard the GoJet Airlines flight, operating as United Express, were sent back to the airport by bus.
 
Flights at Philadelphia's airport, mostly arrivals, were delayed about an hour, spokeswoman Stacy Jackson said.

In New Hampton, N.H., about 20 vehicles piled up in a storm-related chain-reaction crash on Interstate 93, police said, and five people were injured.
 
Parts of southern Indiana saw 6 to 8 inches of snow from the storm, some in areas that had received more than a foot from a blizzard earlier in the week. That blizzard was part of a storm system that dumped more than a foot of snow in some places and has been blamed for at least 16 deaths. It also spawned more than a dozen tornadoes in Alabama, the National Weather Service said.
 
But Saturday's snow wasn't as heavy as that of the previous storm, the weather service said.
