The snow is still falling as most Bostonians leave for work this morning, with a winter storm lingering over the region. The good news is that the storm is in its final hours.

The snow is very banded, meaning that some areas have light snow and great visibility, while other areas are seeing snowfall rates of 2 inches per hour until the bandmoves away. There could be areas that see over 4 inches this morning before the storm moves into the Gulf Of Maine this afternoon.

I think the snow will end by 9 a.m. west of Route 495, but may take all the way until early afternoon as you get to the coast, including Boston, Cape Ann and the South Shore. Over the Cape and the Islands, the colder air should wrap into the area, so any mixed precipitation this morning would change to snow before ending.

As the storm continues to wrap up in the Gulf of Maine, it will throw moisture into eastern Maine and there will be significant snowfall for that area.

For us, it's just cold weather for the next several days, as skies begin to clear this evening. Then, we're looking at several days of partly to mostly sunny skies but temperatures will be more conducive to January than early December.
