Warm today, but temperatures will fall and snow is expected during Wednesday morning commute

Get ready for a sloppy commute Wednesday morning, thanks to snow beginning just after 2 a.m. and continuing through 10 a.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service said today.

One to 2 inches of snow will fall in Boston, and areas north and west of the city will see 2 to 4 inches, said meteorologist Kim Buttrick. Isolated parts of northern Worcester County and northwest Middlesex County could see 5 inches of snow.

Light rain will mix with the snow at times, and after 10 a.m. a warm front will move in, changing the snow over to rain east of Interstate 495.

Buttrick expects the precipitation to taper off around noon Wednesday.

Before the snow begins, today will be party sunny with highs rising to 42 degrees. Tonight lows will drop to 31 as the snow moves in.

The rest of the week will be clear with a high pressure system settling over the Bay State.

Temperatures will fluctuate from the mid-30s into the 40s during the next several days, Buttrick said. A cold front moving through Thursday will drop Friday’s overnight low into the teens in Boston. Temperatures should recover nicely over the weekend with highs in the 40s and clear skies throughout the state, the weather service said.
