Ice wreaked havoc on roads in the Greater Boston area Monday night and Tuesday morning, and that isn’t it for winter weather this week, according to local forecasters.

The National Weather Service predicts that a winter storm could hit at the end of the week with a considerable amount of snow.

“There is growing confidence in a plowable snowfall event for Thursday into Friday,” the service said on Twitter. It’s issued a winter storm watch across most of Massachusetts and all of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Here’s what other local meteorologists are saying about the potential storm later this week:

David Epstein: ‘High pressure building to our north should keep the next storm more snow.’

Pete Bouchard, NBC10 Boston: ‘Could see just under a foot northwest of Boston’

Eric Fisher, WBZ: ‘Most of this event will be light to moderate intensity’

Jeremy Reiner, 7News: Storm ‘not a powerhouse,’ but ‘drawn out’

A.J. Burnett, WCVB: ‘Good burst of snow possible south of the Pike’
