BOSTON (AP) — A winter storm that started off as rain during the morning commute is expected to turn over to snow later in the day and drop as much as 10 inches in some areas of Massachusetts.
The National Weather Service says Friday’s storm is expected to leave 6 to 8 inches of snow in the Boston area and 6 to 10 in the Worcester area. Snowfall amounts are expected to be lower in southeastern and western parts of the state.
The state Transportation Department had deployed almost 1,200 pieces of snow clearing and road treatment equipment on Friday morning while the city of Boston had more than 400 pieces out.
Dozens of school districts across the state have canceled classes for the day, including Boston, Worcester and Springfield.
