Don’t let the balmy temperatures fool you — snow is still in the forecast for Wednesday.
The National Weather Service is urging commuters to “please plan ahead” and prepare for snow-covered roads during the morning’s rush hour.
“Showers will change to a period of accumulating snow later tonight into Wednesday morning, especially south of the Massachusetts Turnpike where a significant impact may occur during the morning commute,” service forecasters wrote Tuesday. “Snow will end by Wednesday afternoon.”
The service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape, which is in effect 10 p.m. Tuesday through noon Wednesday. Most of the Bay State, including Boston, could see a couple inches of accumulation, according to the service.
Below, five maps from local forecasters predicting how much snow will fall through Wednesday afternoon.
No doubt temperatures will be back near freezing tomorrow morning. Still a question as to exactly how much moisture falls in the form of snow Weds. We may see a few snow showers and then a little area try to bubble up before pulling out. Highest risk south. pic.twitter.com/bKDqF0aQ5o

Highest totals will be south of #Boston… generally 1-3", locally higher in some spots… but overall… expect slippery conditions on the roads for the Wednesday morning commute. More about timing than amounts… #WBZ #WBZThisMorning pic.twitter.com/trw1Dkn20v
