Residents in the Historic Triangle might want to bundle up come Friday morning.

The National Weather Service Wakefield office predicts anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow with temperatures around 30 degrees.

“That’s what we expect right now,” said Mike Rusnak, meteorologist at the NWS Wakefield office, adding the forecast could vary depending on the temperature.

On Thursday evening around 8-9 p.m. residents can expect a cold, wintry mix and temperatures around 30 degrees through Friday morning, he added.

Rusnak noted temperatures will stay below freezing on Friday morning through noon and people should prepare for the 2-4 inches of snowfall and a light accumulation of ice up to a tenth of an inch.

In other words, Rusnak said to prepare for “hazardous driving conditions.”

“Temperatures rise to about the mid-30s, but that’s about it,” he said about the Friday afternoon snowy forecast. “It [the snow] will taper off to some freezing rain or freezing drizzle Friday afternoon.”
