Here’s how much snow fell across Massachusetts

The storm dropped snow, sleet, and freezing rain over the Bay State from Tuesday afternoon overnight into Wednesday.

Before the freezing rain began to fall in Massachusetts, more than a few inches of snow had accumulated across the state from the storm that entered the region Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Service forecasters said early Wednesday that the northern part of the state saw between 5 and 6 inches before the weather “changeover.” In Boston, 2.4 inches were observed, bringing the total snowfall for the season up to more than 4 inches.

We just doubled our snow total for the year #Boston!” the service wrote on Twitter.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in place through noon Wednesday for Western Massachusetts, where the service advised residents to plan for slippery road conditions.


Several Massachusetts schools, including Worcester Public Schools, canceled classes Wednesday due to the lingering impacts from the storm or held delays, according to the Boston Globe.

Forecasters said Massachusetts residents can expect some sunshine and temperatures to rise into the 40s later Wednesday.

“The storm system that brought the wintry mix of precipitation to the region overnight will exit into Maine today bringing drier weather to the area later this morning and into the afternoon,” the service said. “Dry but colder weather follows tonight into Thursday then a brief warm-up Friday ahead of an approaching cold front.”
