A risk of of freezing rain or freezing drizzle will accompany the ice pellets.

Freezing rain will possibly hit a large area in the U.S. Midwest, including parts of Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and MI states, the National Weather Service said on Tuesday morning.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily.

The freezing rain is expected to start in the western part of the state around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, beginning in Boston around 9 p.m.

The National Weather Service says conditions could impact the evening commute and Thursday morning commute. Temperatures will likely rise to near 50 degrees before crashing in just a few hours causing a flash freeze.

The freezing rain made the roads slippery and forced plenty of closures and cancellations. A cold front will barrel through the area tonight bringing rain and fog ahead of it, high winds with it and a blast of arctic air behind it.

Schneider said because temperatures are expected to remain in the low 30s during the day and drop into the low 20s and teens during the night, it's likely we will have snow on the ground, and numerous same travel issues, next week.
