    Clouds and some breaks of sun, then scattered snow bursts. Highs near 40. Windy with southwest gusts to 35 mph.

    Blizzard conditions were verified for Cape Cod, the South Shore and the City of Boston in yesterday's storm, with all of those locations verifying three or more consecutive hours of near-zero visibility and frequent wind gusts over 35 mph.

    By the time the storm wrapped up, many communities reported 20-25 inches of snow, a record challenging snowstorm.

    Snow is mostly done now in southern New England. In Northern New England, snow continues with pockets of accumulating snow through most of the day, adding several more inches of accumulation to the mountains and bringing most communities to somewhere between one and two feet, and some mountains closer to three or four feet!

    Even tomorrow will still feature some snow showers in Northern New England, though elsewhere, the March sun angle will have an impact, even through building clouds, to bump temperatures warm enough for some gradual melting.

    We may remain storm-free for the upcoming weekend as daytime high temperatures hover in the 30s south and 20s north, making for cold and quiet weather for the St. Patrick’s Day parade in South Boston Sunday afternoon.

    Another storm is a possibility next week – centered somewhere around Tuesday – with our exclusive NBC10 Boston and necn computer guidance showing a 40 percent chance of snow or rain, and that’s reflected in our Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
