The old reliable “wintery mix” is forecast through the afternoon. In some locations, precipitation will come in the form of rain, though snow could be heavy at times.
The state Department of Transportation said snow is expected to end late Sunday.
“This storm will be a classic wintery mix for much of Massachusetts and travelers may encounter variable conditions on their trip,” Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver said in a news release. “Motorists should reduce speeds, buckle up, and avoid traveling during these peak periods as much as possible.”
