By late Thursday night, the National Weather Service said 21 in. of snow had fallen in a town just north of Boston. About 18 in. fell on parts of upstate New York, and New York City was bracing for heavy snowfall overnight and into Friday morning. Schools in Boston and state government offices in Massachusetts will remain closed on Friday as Gov. Deval Patrick advised residents to remain indoors and avoid “very, very dangerous” temperatures.
