A steady fall of snow began blanketing Boston on Sunday morning, as a large low pressure system moved through the region.

Snow was expected to fall across much of New England, mixing with sleet, until about 2 p.m.,  according to the National Weather Service.

The storm system brought blizzard conditions to the Midwest earlier this week, but Massachusetts will only see a coating of up to about 2 inches for most of the state before the storm moves on toward the southeast. The northwest part of the state could see up to 3 inches accumulation, especially in the Berkshires and northern Worcester Hills.

The weather service said residents should be wary of slippery roads and reduced visibility, and urged people to be cautious when driving.

Warmer weather as the week begins should help the snow start to melt, as Monday will bring temperatures with a high of 47 degrees, according to the weather service.
