William Babcock, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service of Taunton, said hilly areas were generally more suspectible to higher snow accumulations.

“Air flowing up over those hills will wring out a little more snowfall and snow accumulation,” Babcock said.

As of 1 p.m., 12.8 inches were recorded for the storm at Logan International Airport, including 10.2 inches that fell since midnight, which broke the record for March 8. With 14.9 inches falling since midnight alone, Worcester also broke a record.

Babcock expects the flakes to taper off this evening and temperatures to rise to the low to mid-40s this weekend.
