A winter storm warning or advisory has been issued for the central and western parts of the state, but Boston should see less than an inch of snow Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

West of Boston, Bedford could see between 1 to 2 inches, while Worcester is predicted to receive 3 to 4 inches of snow. Fitchburg is forecast to see between 6 and 8 inches of snow, a map from the service shows.

“Forecast challenge will be how much #snow accumulates before changing over to rain,” the service said on Twitter. “A #Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for the Berkshires & Worcester Hills for 4-8″ of heavy wet snow.”
