When will the snow start and end?
Snow will begin in mid to late morning for most of the state north of Somerville, the National Weather Service said.
“Snow may mix with sleet or rain during the late afternoon and evening (especially south of I – 95) before tapering off late this evening, ”according to the weather service’s briefing.

“Light snow accumulations are possible initially, but warming surface temperatures are expected to preclude more significant impacts,” the briefing said.
