UPDATED: Winter Storm Warning in Effect until 7 p.m.

Milford is in the region that the National Weather Service said could get between 15 and 24 inches.

UPDATED: The snow hasn't stopped in Milford and heavy bands will continue to hit the region through early evening Friday.

The National Weather Service has updated its Winter Storm Warning, extending it to 7 p.m.

According to its website, the weather service projects the area that includes Worcester County could get 15 to 24 inches from the storm.

"Total snow accumulation of 15 to 24 inches, highest from Middlesex County, MA southwestward to Tolland County, CT, and over Norfolk County." 

Hazardous driving conditions will remain a problem, as well as a potential for power losses.

On its Facebook and Twitter sites, the Milford Police Department has advised people to stay off the roads, as driving is difficult.

As of 3 p.m., the state trial courts in Worcester County, as well as Plymouth, Norfolk and Bristol counties, will be closing due to weather conditions. This would include Milford District Court.

The next several hours will see additional snow accumulation in Worcester County, before milder air starts to come into the storm, weakening its impact, according to WHDH.com.

The storm dropped just a few inches on the region overnight, but gained strength in the early morning hours when a band from Canada swooped in, dropping snow at a heavy rate.

Milford and Worceser County are part of the snowbelt that could receive 12 to 18 inches from the storm, which is moving out slower than initially forecast.
