BOSTON (CBS) – A short work week leads to a headache. The icy concoction Worcester County’s Tuesday morning went through was relatively short-lived and there’s a glimmer of hope for Wednesday: light, airy, cool.
The sunshine during the week is a one-time event. We have a different system for Thursday evening through Friday.

At this point the timing was shifted slightly. The low pressure wave will likely land south of Massachusetts on Thursday afternoon and cause some snow build-up later in the day.

While there may be some showers for the evening shuttle, the real hassle will be Friday morning. During the night hours, this snow will build up into a substantial build-up. While it is currently difficult to pinpoint exact ranges, models indicate that those north and west of Boston have the highest totals.
The struggle with this system is similar to last month: the rain and snow line. On Friday there will likely be a mix of snow, sleet, rain, and even the possibility of freezing rain. In this case the overall effect could shift. Even so, Friday morning shuttles appear to be the main battle.

Showers are likely to last 24 hours (late Thursday through late Friday) and the weekend is just around the corner! Saturday and Sunday should be brighter and quieter.
