FITCHBURG -- Snow is expected to develop starting around 9 a.m. Wednesday, and spreading over all of Massachusetts by noon, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).

A short burst of heavy snowfall is likely at the onset of the storm and, during the afternoon, it will transition to sleet and/or freezing rain from south to north across interior northeast and central Massachusetts.

Rain or freezing rain may turn back to snow as the system departs the New England region, resulting in a flash freeze Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to MEMA.

Between three and six inches of snow are forecast for eastern Massachusetts along and northwest of the I-95 corridor, including the metro Boston area.
