SHREWSBURY, Mass. - A nor'easter with frigid winds blowing gusts of snow hit Central Massachusetts Wednesday afternoon.

"Today’s evening commute will be impacted by the inclement weather and the morning commute tomorrow will also likely be a messy one," said Shrewsbury weather analyst Jim Arnold.

He continued: "This will not be a blockbuster storm for us.  Still, it will be enough to cause some problems.  There may be some leftover precipitation tomorrow, but I expect the storm to be pulling away from our area by later in the afternoon, and temperatures should warm up a bit then."

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory warning until 7 a.m. Thursday.

The NWS warned of that heavy snowfall would continue into Wednesday evening, giving way to freezing drizzle. There is a possibility of two to four inches of snow accumulation with an ice glaze, and a low risk of snow up to six inches.

Roads may become slippery during the evening commute, and walking on sidewalks may become difficult. The NWS urged caution along bridges and overpasses.
