Our snowless luck may have run out.
Wakefield could see 3-5 inches of snow starting Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon, according to a winter storm watch issued this morning by the National Weather Service (NWS).
With fluctuating temperatures—a Wednesday high of 38 and Thursday high near 43—the snow should also mix in with sleet and freezing rain at times, the NWS said, although colder temperatures could linger longer than currently forecast, resulting in less sleet and freezing rain and more snow.
"Snow is currently expected to overspread southern New England Wednesday afternoon and transition to a wintry mix Wednesday evening," the NWS statement read. "The heaviest precipitation should occur from last Wednesday into Thursday morning."
The Wednesday evening commute could be slippery and drivers will wake up on Thursday to slick roads.
Winds could also gust up to 20 miles per hour as the storm system moves through the area.
