Flakes will begin falling around 9 p.m., with snow showers lingering across the region until about 1 to 3 a.m.

Residents throughout the Bay State can expect anywhere from a coating to three inches of snow before it transitions to sleet and freezing rain.

This will lead to slick road conditions overnight and into the early morning for areas north and west of Boston.

“Plan on slippery road conditions,” the National Weather Service said. “The hazardous conditions could impact the Thursday morning commute.”

The NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for Massachusetts, excluding the Cape and the Islands.
