Latest snow total predictions for January 21, 2012.

BOSTON (CBS) – The snow has begun to fall across our area and for many this will end up being the biggest snowfall so far this season, including Boston!

The forecast remains essentially unchanged from Friday. The steadiest of the snow and majority of accumulation will happen before 3 p.m.

After that, snow will be tapering from west to east. By dark or shortly thereafter, the snow will have stopped for everyone, except for some lingering flakes along the immediate South Shore and Cape.

Snow will be greatest South of the Mass Pike, especially in Plymouth and Bristol Counties where 4-6″ will fall.

Snow may be briefly heavy in that area just after midday and before the storm comes to an end and a few spots could reach up to 7″ or 8″.

In Boston and areas northwest through Southern New Hampshire, we expect 2-4″, very fluffy and light snow. The lightest amounts will be far north and west, north of Manchester N.H., just a coating to an inch or two in Central and Northern New England.

Again, this will be a very light and fluffy snow, easy to handle and push around…only exception, down on the immediate South Coast and Cape where temperatures will be closer to freezing and snow will be a bit wetter.

No wind or coastal issues, no ice or mixing, just a straight snow.

Finally the forecast for Tomorrow’s Pats game…temperatures at kickoff will be right around freezing (32) with a light east wind. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with just a slight chance of a few passing flurries.
