Massachusetts will see a few more hours of accumulating snowfall on Tuesday before the “persistent winter storm” that has been impacting the region since Sunday finally takes its leave from southern New England. 

The National Weather Service warned that heavy snow in the Boston area would make for a “very slow commute.” 

“Snow will end as the morning progresses from west to east,” service forecasters wrote. “By noon snow should be confined to eastern coastal [Massachusetts] including Boston and Cape Cod.”

The storm, which began Sunday, is forecast to continue to bring additional snowfall to the region through Tuesday afternoon. Most of Massachusetts is under either a Winter Storm Warning or Winter Weather Advisory through noon.

So far, the service estimates eastern Massachusetts has seen between two and eight inches of accumulation, while the central and western parts of the state have observed higher totals ranging from nine inches in Hudson to 22 in Lenox.

Here are five maps predicting how much more snow to expect from the storm:
