Parts of Massachusetts have seen more than a foot of snow dumped in the region from Winter Storm Grayson. The storm is bringing heavy snow and blizzard-like conditions to many parts of the northeaster United State, including winds similar to a Category 1 hurricane in some regions, along with coastal flooding, power outages, and whiteout conditions. This morning, snow was falling at the rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour in some regions, with up to 11 inches already recording in Long Island. Other regions are also seeing “thundersnow,” and seawall damage has been reported south of Boston. But how much snow exactly has fallen so far in the Massachusetts area? The following are the snow fall totals for Thursday, January 4, 2018 in Massachusetts.
