New Englanders woke up to a wintry, white cityscape as snow fell across the area, eventually totaling more than half a foot in parts of Massachusetts.

The city of Boston received 4.3 inches of snow. Parts of Worcester, Hampden, and Franklin counties received between 7 and 8 inches of snow, among the greatest snowfalls in the state.

The National Weather Service (NWS) posted snowfall totals at 1:30 p.m.

The NWS also warned of black ice across portions of southeastern New England on Saturday evening.

“The roads could potentially be dangerous and slippery,” said NWS meteorologist Lenore Correia. “Be careful out there.”
