A strong cold front crossing the region Tuesday is forecast to bring rain — and a brief period of snow — to parts of Massachusetts.

The National Weather Service said with the rapidly falling temperatures, the best chance for snow will occur across the Bay State’s higher terrain, across the western sides of the Berkshires and the Worcester Hills. The rain is predicted to change to snow Tuesday morning in interior parts of the state and during the afternoon in eastern Massachusetts.

“At this point, could see up to around an inch or so of snow in those higher locations,” service forecasters wrote Monday morning. “Elsewhere, light snow accumulations, generally less than 0.5 inches even across coastal communities.”

The snow will be “short-lived,” but forecasters warned the cold and precipitation could cause hazardous conditions for drivers.

Some slippery travel possible with falling [temperatures],” the service wrote.

Later in the day, the region is predicted to see “record cold” into the evening and overnight into Wednesday, with temperatures dropping to the teens and lower 20s and wind chills below zero. 

Below, six maps from local meteorologists predicting where, and how much, snow could fall Tuesday in Massachusetts.
