Can't lie---I love snow, I love snowstorms but picking up half of your winters snowfall in 2 days is a little crazy. I don't think it's over either as our jet stream that delivered the Blizzard will remain *hyper active* the next 2-3 weeks. I'm not saying we're getting another blizzard but I do think we'll be doing more shoveling before St. Patrick's Day.
The next storm on the docket will offer a burst of snow before changing to rain (freezing rain well inland). Most towns will pick up a quick 1" of snow and even some towns near 2" of snow. Looks like only a coating of snow for the city of Boston & south along the immediate south shore (Rt 3 & east). As we step into the afternoon, just light rain for most of us & some leftover freezing rain well inland as temps climb into the low 30s. It's a fast moving storm and will be exiting early this evening. Rainfall totals will finish between .30" by the end of the storm. Not overly concerned about roof collapses, rather clogged storm drains which will lead to some large puddles/partially flooded roadways across the region. Allow extra travel wherever you're going today.
As we step toward tomorrow & Wednesday, drier air moves in as well as seasonably mild weather with temps tomorrow near 45 and highs on Wednesday in the low 40s. More snow is likely on Thursday. More on this later today on TV.
