Meteorologists predict a storm will bring accumulating snow to Massachusetts “very late” from Thursday to Friday.

The National Weather Service said the exact amount of snowfall and how far west over the state it will extend remains uncertain. But forecasters said the coastal storm “is expected to affect Friday morning commuting with several inches of accumulating snowfall.”

“This system is likely to produce widespread snowfall, but it is not expected to be a major storm,” the service said. “Right now, a few ingredients are missing with this system, which will limit both impacts and snow accumulations.”

So far, the service predicts Boston may see between 4 and 6 inches of snow, while Cape Cod and the Berkshires will only see a few inches. Below are six maps showing how much snow can fall from the storm at the end of the week:
