Winter isn’t quite done with Massachusetts yet. 

The National Weather Service is warning that a Saturday storm will bring wintry weather to the region. 

“Rain will change to snow with most of the accumulation in the interior higher terrain,” service meteorologists said Friday. 

The service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Western Massachusetts, predicting that the eastern slopes of the Berkshires could see between 3 and 5 inches of accumulation. Meanwhile, from Worcester to the coast, residents could see between a dusting to an inch. The southeastern part of the state, along with the Cape, could miss out on snow entirely, seeing just rain.


“Snowfall expected to end between roughly 5 and 8 p.m. from west to east,” the service said. “In addition to the snow/rain gusty northwest winds will develop behind the cold front during the afternoon.”

Below, see what local meteorologists are predicting for the Saturday storm and its impacts:
