Have your shovels ready, snow is in the forecast! A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for our area for snow starting around 6 PM this evening and continuing to 6 am EST Saturday. Locations include western and central Massachusetts north of the Massachusetts Turnpike and west of I-495. Expect accumulations of 2 to 4 inches along with a trace of ice. Localized accumulations of 5 or 6 inches possible in the east slopes of the Berkshires. The precipitation is likely to start as rain, changing quickly over to sleet and then snow this evening. Brief heavy snow is possible. Meanwhile, temperatures will fall into the upper 20s - that's nearly a 30 degree drop from Friday morning to Friday night.
