HANOVER -- Parts of the South Shore were walloped by a storm that rolled into Massachusetts Tuesday night and hung around until Wednesday afternoon, with about a foot and a half of snow blanketing several towns, while the city of Boston received significantly less.
Norwell, which had 18.3 inches overnight, had the highest recorded snowfall in the state, closely followed by Hanover with 18 inches, and Duxbury and Weymouth with 17 inches each, the weather service said.
Tallies for much of the rest of the Commonwealth, including Boston, hovered in the single digits, according to figures provided by the National Weather Service in Taunton.
