Dry, milder weather to prevail into weekend

Massachusetts woke up to white this morning. Though Tuesday’s evening commute proved somewhat hellish, the snow shouldn’t hamper transportation today.

Essex and northern Middlesex counties reported 8 inches, the most snow recorded last night, according to the National Weather Service. Boston wasn’t hit quite as hard, with 6.4 inches of snow recorded at Logan Airport. Still, Boston hadn’t seen that much snow on Dec. 17 before, and the 6.4 inches set the new Boston snowfall record for the 17th.
