    As a powerful nor’easter slams into Massachusetts Wednesday, school systems have begun to announce closures for Thursday.

    The latest National Weather Service forecasts predict up to 8 inches of snow in Boston, which had hoped to escape with only a glancing blow. Meanwhile, central and western parts of the state are expected to receive as much as 18 inches of the cold white stuff.

    Here’s a list of some Boston-area schools that have announced closures on Thursday, updated as of about 9 a.m. Thursday.
