The National Weather Service is warning a fast-moving clipper system will bring periods of light snow to Massachusetts Friday afternoon and evening — potentially impacting the rush hour commute. 

Service forecasters said the areas of the Bay State with the best chance of seeing light accumulations are along, and north, of the Mass. Pike, while the east slopes of the Berkshires could see more than 2 inches. Boston is predicted to see less than an inch of snowfall. 

“Those in eastern/central MA will continue to be impacted by snow showers during the Friday evening rush hour which could cause some additional travel hazard,” forecasters wrote. 



According to the service, colder, drier air will move into the region Friday night and Saturday for the weekend. Precipitation will return with off and on rain in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday.
