A stormy mix of rain and snow will be hitting Massachusetts on Tuesday and into Wednesday, which could accumulate up to seven inches. 

The National Weather Service issued a winter warning that is in effect from 3 p.m. on Tuesday to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, with scattered snow showers expected throughout western and central Massachusetts and parts of Connecticut. 

The heaviest snow is expected to start at 6 p.m. Tuesday and will fall until early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. 

Slippery road conditions on Tuesday night are expected, and even though the snowfall should come to an end by Wednesday’s daybreak, untreated roads may remain slippery on Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service said in an advisory warning. 

“Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities,” the National Weather Service said in a statement. “Use caution while driving.” 

Gusty winds from the west and frigid temperatures are expected to follow the snow storm. 

Temperatures could dip as low as minus 4 degrees on Wednesday night, with a wind chill value of minus 14 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. 

Thursday there will be a high of 15 degrees, with a low of around 1 degree on Thursday night.
