Accumulating snow forecast for Tuesday night and into Wednesday could have an impact on the evening and morning commutes, according to local meteorologists.

For most of Eastern Massachusetts, 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible. The tip of Cape Cod is predicted to see far less snow – just less than an inch is forecast, according to the National Weather Service.

More snow is headed for Western and Central Massachusetts, which has a winter weather advisory in parts of the region. The forecast in North Adams is between 4 and 6 inches, while Worcester will see 2 to 3 inches, the service said.

“May make for difficult travel for the late Tues PM commute the AM commute Wed.,” the service said on Twitter.
