Snow is predicted to fall across much of the state early Monday afternoon into the evening, though areas closer to the coast will see mostly rain, according to local forecasters.

The National Weather Service predicts that the snow will reach Western Massachusetts between noon and 2 p.m. and the northeastern portion of the state by 3 p.m.

Even though it’s only forecast to rain in some areas, the rain could still make for a “messy” commute Monday night, according to Mike Wankum of WCVB.

Here’s what local forecasters are saying about the snow and rain:

Shiri Spear, Boston 25 News: ‘Elevations will get the worst of the slippery travel this afternoon & evening’

Zack Green, WBZ: ‘Looking at a rain event from 495 to the coast’

Chris Lambert, 7News: ‘Big puddles for the evening commute’

Matt Noyes, NBC10 and NECN: ‘Whether it’s wet roads or greasy ones, either way, the evening commute will be slower than usual’

Mike Wankum, WCVB: ‘It looks like the Monday evening commute will be a bit messy’

Eric Fisher, WBZ: ‘Mostly rain/wet roads along and east of 495’
