BOSTON (CBS) – The storm will slowly wind down this afternoon as the storm departs to our east. A few more bursts of snow this morning will add an additional swatch of 2-to-4 inches for most of the area, a coating to 2 inches for areas across Cape Cod and the Islands as well as areas farther north including southern New Hampshire.
Roads are snowy, slushy and wet so please prepare for a longer morning commute. You may need that extra cup of coffee to get you going this morning!
