A storm that delivered heavy snow and deteriorating travel conditions finally began tapering off, leaving plunging temperatures.

As of early on Wednesday morning, Randolph, Mass., had already received 11 inches of snow and Braintree had received 9.3 inches. However, totals topped a foot farther south towards Hanover and Brockton.

After a mild start to the week, a storm originating from western Canada strengthened as it approached in addition to tapping into arctic air.

Temperatures fell into the single digits early on Wednesday morning with increasing wind. RealFeel® temperatures dropped well below zero and will continue through the day.

Temperatures are forecast to remain below freezing most days through the end of the month.
