Meteorologist Chris Lambert says the flakes will start falling early Saturday afternoon and persist into the evening. The steadiest of the snowfall is expected during the mid-afternoon hours.

Metro Boston, Worcester, central Massachusetts and areas on the North Shore and South Shore are expected to see 3-6 inches.

Western and southeastern areas are slated to see 1-3 inches. Cape Cod and the Islands will see a coating to one inch of snow.

If the storm tracks slightly to the west, it could become more of a rain-snow mix.

The storm will not cause wind damage and flooding will not be a concern.

Dry conditions will move in for Sunday. A few early morning flurries are possible.
