The snow is still falling in what forecasters are saying will be a “plowable” event for much of Massachusetts on Tuesday. 

The precipitation, which began overnight, is expected to accumulate particularly in the state’s higher elevations, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters and state officials alike have been warning travelers that the snowfall could make for a difficult morning commute, particularly from western Massachusetts and Connecticut into Rhode Island.

As of Tuesday morning, western parts of Massachusetts were reporting more than 6 inches of snow, while the Greater Boston area received only a few inches. 


As temperatures rose above freezing early Tuesday morning, the service said it had lowered its predictions for additional snowfall for the region by an inch or two. 

“We expect to see remaining snow showers to become of the wet heavy type,” the service said. “With temperatures rising above freezing, this will limit additional accumulations.”

Eastern Massachusetts remains under a Winter Weather Advisory through 7 p.m Tuesday, which warns of snow accumulations of between 1 and 3 inches, wind gusts up to 40 mph, and potentially slippery road conditions for both the morning and evening commutes. Western parts of the state are under a Winter Storm Warning through Tuesday evening, which cautions residents to expect between 2 and 7 inches of snow and potentially hazardous travel during the morning and evening commutes.
