REGION – Just in time for the height of the holiday season, the season’s first snow on Dec. 11 left between one to two inches in the region.

Shrewsbury and Westborough both received 1.9 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

The heaviest of the snow occurred in the late afternoon and early evening.

The snow frosted the trees and created some nice seasonal landscapes, but it did not cause any major traffic delays.

Most of the snow should be gone by Friday, when the next storm is scheduled to arrive – in the form of rain.
