Stephanie Dunten, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Tuesday that the storm is ongoing and that it was not yet clear whether the storm will generate historic snowfalls, as initially predicted. She said snowfalls are still expected to max out in some parts of the state at 2 1/2 to 3 feet.
Forecasters said at 9 a.m. that they expected another 6 to 10 inches of snow from the storm. But they also said that far western Massachusetts would only see a moderate snowstorm. The city of Boston said at around 10:30 a.m. that it expected another 10 to 14 inches.

Lisa Caisse said she called rescuers for help at about 5 a.m. Tuesday after a rock hit a storm shutter on her home in the Humarock section of this South Shore town.
She said she thought she could ride out the storm with her husband and 14-year-old Labrador retriever, Casey, because the home is equipped with a generator.
The rock caused “a dent like I’ve never seen,” she said.
When she evacuated her home on Central Avenue, Caisse said nine inches of water sloshed in the basement and water was spraying through a side door.
“The storm came down both sides of the house,” she said. “It took out the wall that would have protected our door.”
A rescue truck drove Caisse and her dog to a parking lot at the intersection of Central Avenue and Harvard Street where a Scituate police sergeant waited to pick them up. She said she was headed to an emergency shelter in Scituate.
“Sometimes you make bad decisions,” Caisse said with a laugh. “This was a bad decision.”
