    (Published Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018)

    The drive into work and school looks fine as snow will start by late morning. Most areas will see snow at the onset (except for the Cape and the Islands).

    With a southerly component to the wind, we will see a transition from snow to rain. By early afternoon that transition line will make it up to the Massachusetts Turnpike.

    During the mid to late afternoon, it could go just north of Route 2. The exceptions will be the shelters regions of Worcester County where there could be freezing rain or sleet around.

    Most of the precipitation will end by mid to late evening. The highest snowfall totals will be north of Route 2 where 6 inches or more are likely. Even with a change to rain for the Interstate 95 corridor, it could be a messy ride home with locally heavy rain. Up to an inch of rain is possible. Even if roads aren’t slippery, there could be some big puddles, which could cause you to hydroplane.

    Quiet weather will return by Thursday. Temperatures will be seasonably cool with temperatures in the 30s and sunny skies. The weekend forecast looks a little unsettled. However, the next system will be working with some warmer air (temperatures in the 40s), which would mean mainly rain for the region.
