Yes, you may see the first accumulating snowfall of the season Thursday night.
Meteorologist David Epstein says snow will start falling in the Boston area just after the evening commute.
“There may be a few snow showers before that time, but the bulk of the accumulation will occur between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m.,” he wrote for Boston.com.
The precipitation is gradually expected to change to rain near the coast before skies clear for the weekend.
“In Greater Boston, we’ll see a period of steady rain Friday morning before clearing moves in for Friday night,” Epstein wrote.

Not much change. This comes in a quick burst this evening before mix/change to rain around or just after midnight. Earlier along coast, south. pic.twitter.com/COQ86V4Zsp

1-2" snow around #Boston and closer to the coastline before a change to rain overnight. Amounts ramp up as you go inland. Highest snow totals N&W of Worcester in the higher elevations #wcvb pic.twitter.com/OrnhISfwFS
