Crews worked during the early morning hours through the afternoon trying to keep the roads, including Interstate 93, clear.

People in Andover woke up to 9 inches of snow, along with massive snowbanks created by the plows.

Dracut has seen a foot of snow already, while Bedford, Tyngsborough, and Wilmington are approaching that mark.

Light snow continued to fall throughout the morning in the area but the storm is expected to ramp up again on Monday night and last into Tuesday morning’s commute.
