Weekdays 6-10am

WARMINSTER, PA - JANUARY 22: A lone snow plow is barely visible through the wind blown snow January 22, 2005 as it navigates a highway during a major winter snowstorm in Warminster, Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia region is expected to get up to 14 inches of snow by the time the storm ends. (Photo by William Thomas Cain/Getty Images)

We are actually getting more snow than originally anticipated. Snow has been averaging up to 2 inches per hour in some spots.

  • Forecast snow totals have increased to 8-12”+ from Boston to Providence and down into parts of Connecticut
  • The heaviest snow and worst travel continues through about 10-11 a.m.
  • Snow falling at such a high rate that road crews will struggle to keep up

Heaviest of snow will start to trail off by 11am in Boston.

HOW MUCH

  • 8-12”+ North Shore through Boston to the immediate South Shore and back westward through Norfolk county into northern Rhode Island and Connecticut
  • 4”-8” for the rest of eastern and central MA
  • 2”-4” well to the north and west, beyond northern Worcester county into central New England (farther away from the storm), much lighter/fluffier snow up this way
  • 2”-4” over most of the Cape with some mixing with rain likely at times and a much heavier/wetter consistency
