Boston saw 2 to 4 inches of snow Saturday night, with clouds parting and temperatures rising above freezing early Sunday morning.

In a “well behaved” overnight storm, forecasters said most of the region saw up to 4 inches of snow, with 5 to 6 inches common across northern parts of the state.

Snow accumulation stopped around midnight, and peaked between 7 and 9 p.m., according to National Weather Service Boston. Inland Massachusetts saw “a very light freezing drizzle” through pre-dawn hours.

Sunday afternoon highs should reach the lower to middle 40s with a slight breeze in some locales, according to NWS Boston.

The weekend storm marked the first major snow fall of the year, after an unseasonably warm start to the month.
