Weather watchers say up to a foot of snow fell in parts of southern New England as the latest winter storm moved through the Northeast. The storm had ended in the region by this morning and dry weather was expected for days, although strong winds may chill the bone. A National Weather Service meteorologist in Taunton, Mass., said six to 12 inches of snow fell from yesterday afternoon and overnight in Rhode Island, eastern Connecticut, and eastern Massachusetts, including Foxborough where the New England Patriots play. Many residents lost power after wet snow piled up on power lines. (More snow storm stories.)
