Get ready Massachusetts, snow — and a lot of it — is on the way.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the entire state, except for the islands, and nearly all of the state is expected to see a foot of snow Wednesday night into Thursday.
“Snow arrives from southwest to northeast during the early evening,” the service said. “Road conditions will deteriorate quickly due to snowfall rates 1-2″ per hour – travel with extreme caution.”
Added 2″ to the totals based on high confidence of reaching 10″ in nearly all areas. Fluffy snow in Berkshires could exceed 16″. Less confident in exceeding that in eastern MA, but it’s possible. It will depend on banding structure. pic.twitter.com/4F9yzv4UD8

We’ve reached the stage of the forecast where I’m going to try to feature a few “hot spots” where we may get localized higher totals. For this one, looking at the Monadnock Region, Berkshires/southern Greens, and a zone south of Boston. #wbz pic.twitter.com/EOpXzIP49W
