Massachusetts could gets its first inches of snowfall of the season this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
The agency said on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that while there is “a lot of uncertainty and future forecast changes are likely at this time range,” the southeastern part of the state has the best chance to see some snow accumulation Friday night or Saturday.
But the current chance that Taunton, for example, sees an accumulation of two inches or more of snow is only 29 percent, according to the agency.
Boston has a 21 percent chance of seeing at least 2 inches of snow, and only a 10 percent chance of seeing more than three inches.
But forecasters’ prediction as of Wednesday afternoon was for most of the state, including Boston, to get less than one inch of snow. Forecasters predicted New Bedford will get two inches of snow, and parts of the Cape and Islands will get three inches.
Western and northern parts of the state will be the least impacted, according to forecasters.
The chance for snow comes from an offshore system heading toward Massachusetts from the south, said Stephanie Dunten, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
“We’re on the fringe right now, so there’s a potential that the storm could move closer to the region and increase the snow amounts and any kind of rain potential on the Cape and Islands. If it moves farther away, we may scrape by with no precipitation,” she said.
Friday night in Boston is expected to be cloudy with a low of 31 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Saturday’s temperature could climb as high as 39 degrees, before falling below 30 degrees at night. Sunday is expected to be partly sunny with a high near 39 degrees.
