Baker announces 11 a.m. start time for some state employees

With another storm battering Massachusetts, Governor Charlie Baker has announced an 11 a.m. delayed start time Thursday for all non-emergency state executive branch employees.

The delayed start, according to his office, will allow road crews time and space to plow streets impacted by the storm. Baker’s office is encouraging residents to use public transportation when possible.

Boston could see up to eight inches of snow, with areas in-land seeing more. The brunt of the storm was expected to sweep through Greater Boston between midnight and 8 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.
