The snow is still falling, but forecasters say the precipitation from the “lingering” winter storm will taper off by Tuesday afternoon.

The storm, which began impacting Massachusetts on Sunday, had already dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of the state by Tuesday, with several hours of heavy snowfall reducing visibility and causing difficult conditions for the morning commute.

“Intensity of snow is beginning to diminish,” service forecasters wrote just before noon. “This trend will continue with snow tapering off and ending this afternoon.”

The National Weather Service estimated the eastern part of the state had seen between 2 and 8 inches of accumulation by Tuesday morning, while the central and western parts of Massachusetts had observed higher totals stretching above 2 feet in Winchendon.
