Spring may be on our doorstep, but snow is still in the forecast

Snow is predicted to overspread Massachusetts on Wednesday morning, but the National Weather Service is forecasting the white stuff will “have difficulty accumulating on roads and sidewalks.”

The service is expecting a few inches could pile up on grassy or dirt surfaces, with higher accumulations predicted in the western part of the state. 

Below, see what local meteorologists are saying about the timing and impacts of the snowfall.

National Weather Service: “Given light snow intensity, temps at or above freezing & increasing March sun angle, main roads should remain just wet.”

Aaron Perry, NECN & NBC10 Boston: “Today’s snow event will result in accumulation on really only grass and cold surfaces throughout the afternoon and evening due to early-October equivalent sun angle.”

Shiri Spear, Boston 25 News: “Expect a dreary afternoon in #Boston with snowy lawns and wet roads.”

Zack Green, WBZ: “Snow totals aren’t the main threat with this one (it’s the afternoon-evening travel) but we’re still eyeing down a few inches across the region.”

Chris Lambert, WHDH: “Few evening slick spots, best chance for that across the higher terrain.”

Cindy Fitzgibbon, WCVB: “Snow melts tomorrow under☀️ and temps over 50°.”
