Most of Massachusetts is in for accumulating snow Tuesday evening, according to local forecasters.
“Most accumulation occurs before 8 p.m. followed by lighter snow/wintry mix/rain tonight/Wednesday,” the National Weather Service said on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
Then, Thursday through Saturday, temperatures are expected to plummet.
For more on the impacts and timing of the snow, see what local meteorologists are saying. Below, seven maps predicting the snow totals.

Snowfall totals reminder. Not expecting much but enough for some slick roads this afternoon/evening. Then it’ll taper to a mix of light snow/freezing drizzle/sleet pellets overnight that’ll keep things icy. #wbz pic.twitter.com/VLVNnLwLLE

-Steadiest thru midnight with slippery roads
-Still slick for Wed AM commute
-Lingering snow/rain showers Wednesday don’t add much additional accumulation #WCVB pic.twitter.com/NchRTSqf5G

4pm TUE..as for snowfall forecast, same general idea as yesterday. Highest amounts in Worcester county (and Berkshires). 1-3″ for much of the region by early Wednesday morning. #7news pic.twitter.com/QegRCx7GzM

Not a lot of snow by New England standards but it’s been forever since we had snow during an evening commute or a morning commute, so you know it’ll be impactful in some regard. Snows at a pretty good clip this evening, then gets way lighter after midnight. pic.twitter.com/SeOpv9Id2x
