National Weather Service: ‘Light to moderate snow continues off and on through the day’

Cindy Fitzgibbon, WCVB: ‘Additional 2-4″ for most thru Saturday AM with some locally higher amounts from ocean effect bands’

Zack Green, WBZ: ‘Expecting an additional 2-4″ from now through Friday evening. This is a sloooow stack, not a big thump. Main push will come from ocean enhanced showers during the late afternoon and early evening.’

Dave Epstein: ‘Probably some enhancement to the snow later this afternoon/evening and this is when Boston should receive the most snowfall from this nuisance storm’

Shiri Spear, Boston 25 News: ‘I’m thinking an additional inch or two in most of MA today, but a moderate burst of snow this evening could push some spots up to 3-4″‘

Chris Lambert, 7News: ‘Lingering snow showers into the predawn hours tomorrow near the coast. Most towns fall within the 3-5″ range when all said and done. Few isolated 6″.’

Matt Noyes, NBC10 Boston and NECN: ‘Some might refer to today’s snow as ‘snowglobe snow,’ falling nearly continuously but fairly lightly for the most part. While some heavier bursts occur from time to time, I think it gets more interesting later afternoon, evening & early night as wind brings in ocean moisture.’
