Snow to End by Saturday Afternoon
Winds and snow drifts, however, could continue through the weekend.
Snow is falling hard throughout the region and it is forecast to continue into Saturday afternoon.
"I still think we'll see accumulating snow throughout the early part of the afternoon, but after 3 p.m., the storm may breath its last breath," wrote WHDH Chief Meteorologist Pete Bouchard in the Channel 7 Weather Blog.
The storm will start to pull out to ocean by midday, Bouchard said. The snow will pull away with the storm, but the wind will pick up.
"Blowing and drifting will be issues through early Sunday," wrote Bouchard.
When all is over with, the National Weather Service is predicting, the storm will have dropped about two feet of snow on the area. Those totals were lowered from Friday morning predictions.
