In Foxboro, conditions deteriorated quickly as the afternoon wore on and snow continued to accumulate in the roadways.

The snow is wet, heavy, and slushy making driving treacherous. Plows are coming through town almost constantly.

About an inch an hour we can keep up,” Director of Foxboro Department of Public Works Chris Gallagher said. “If we see three to four inches an hour, we’re going to see roads covered until we can plow them again.”

On the road, in Randolph, the visibility was greatly reduced as conditions continued to worsen.

Gusty winds are expected to continue in the area as well reaching anywhere from 40 to 50 mph.

Flakes began falling in parts of Mass. early Monday morning and increased in intensity between noon and 2 p.m.

This is a storm the Foxboro has been prepping for since Friday and there is still quite a bit of work to come.

“I would suspect we’ll be here through tomorrow afternoon,” Gallagher said. “Hopefully, the snow stops well before that and we can just do cleanup work and deal with some flurries tomorrow afternoon.”

The significant snowfall leaving crews busy and dogs happy.

“She absolutely loves this weather so she’s excited for it,” dog owner Craig Carreira.
