Winter storm Kenan hit New York on Friday and Saturday, dumping more than a foot of snow in parts of the city.

The heaviest snowfall had left the tri-state area by 7 p.m. Saturday night as the storm moved north and battered parts of eastern New England.

Most snowfall in the Big Apple was between 7 and 10 inches, such as Central Park which saw 8.3 inches, according to Accuweather meteorologist Alan Reppert. Some neighborhoods in Queens, however, saw more than 12 inches, he said.

Bayside had one of the biggest accumulations, with 13.1 inches recorded at 7 p.m. Saturday night. Middle Village was hit with 12.7 inches and JFK Airport saw a measured total of 12.6 inches, according to Accuweather totals.

In Brooklyn, the heaviest accumulation was recorded at Bay Ridge, which came within a foot at 11 inches.

Woodrow in Staten Island measured a peak accumulation of 9.9 inches in the borough.

In the Bronx, 9.1 inches were recorded at Throgs Neck.

Long Island was hit hardest by Kenan as it moved up the Atlantic coast, with accumulations of more than 20 inches recorded in parts of Suffolk County, with Deer Park measuring 21 inches of snow.

The Jersey Shore was also hard hit, with 19.5 inches recorded at Beachwood in Ocean County.

According to FlightAware, 4,831 flights were canceled across the United States on Saturday. Nearly 2,000 flights were grounded for travelers on Sunday.

Reppert told the Post that the main concerns for Saturday night remained wind gusts to 40 mph.

“The winds will remain quite strong throughout the night, we still expect to blow and redirect the snow that has fallen,” he said. “There may be a few showers around…but it looks like the majority of the storm is over.”
