The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch across MA ahead of Wednesday's storm, excluding the southeast.

Between 2 and 4 inches of snow is expected from 3 a.m.to noon Wednesday. However, freezing rain will linger well into the afternoon and perhaps even into the early evening over northern and western portions of the state since the cold air will be hard to scour out. There may be a refreeze as temperatures dip Wednesday evening. This isn't a big nor'easter but where it stays all snow the potential exists for 6 to 12 inches, most likely into southern New Hampshire, Maine, and much of Vermont.

✓ Precipitation will transition to a wintry mix then to freezing rain Wednesday morning into the afternoon.
