Winter weather advisory issued as more snow, ice, rain expected overnight

BOSTON (WHDH) - A winter weather advisory has been issued for the majority of the Bay State as residents brace for more snow, ice, and rain that may create slick conditions during the Thursday morning commute.

Wednesday features clear skies into the afternoon before clouds begin to thicken in the evening.

A storm producing snow and sleet is projected to move into Massachusetts after midnight before transitioning to rain between 4 and 6 a.m. Thursday.

The rain showers are expected to taper off in the afternoon.

Northern Massachusetts could get 2 to 4 inches of snow, while north of the Mass. Pike may receive 1 to 2 inches. An inch or less could accumulate in the rest of the state.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory between about 11 p.m. Wednesday and noon Thursday for Western and Central Massachusetts, as well as the North Shore.

Friday will be mostly sunny but a bitter blast of air will come in during the night and into Saturday morning. This is projected to be a short stint of cold air.
