The National Weather Service says the nor’easter that began dropping heavy, wet snow in Massachusetts on Wednesday will be making its true exit from the region late Thursday afternoon.
“Like unwanted leftovers, the snow just won’t go away!” service forecasters wrote. “But [the] last of [the] snow will finally exit [the] region by 4 pm. Nothing will stick as [temperatures] remain above freezing.”
