    Bitter Cold Temperatures, Wind Chills Could Reach Record Low

    BOSTON (CBS) – We are inching towards the finish line with this nor’easter and it has been a long road.
    Many locations will have seen falling snow for nearly 36 hours by the time the last flakes fall from the sky Friday.

    We will end up with a huge range of final snowfall totals from around 6 inches in some areas north and west of Interstate 495 to closer to 12-to-14 inches near the Massachusetts coastline to a whopping 18-to-30 inches up in Essex County north of Boston!

    This has truly been an Arctic snowstorm. Temperatures have been in the single digits for the most part, leading to an extremely light and fluffy snowfall. This has helped snow totals pile up quickly in some areas (Essex County) and will also help to ease the big cleanup ahead on roads and driveways across the state.

    The snow ended from west to east Friday morning, in Worcester around 7 a.m. and in Boston around 9 a.m.

    There may still be some flakes falling in the skies after these hours, but any accumulation will be done.
    It will take much longer to wrap up over Cape Cod, Cape Ann and Nantucket. Cold North-Northwest winds flowing over the relatively mild ocean waters will keep the snow machine going over the Cape due to some ocean enhancement.
    Stay warm!

    We will be cold and snowy over the weekend but just normal for us.
