BOSTON (AP) - Forecasters say a nor’easter moving toward Massachusetts could bring about two feet of snow and high winds to central parts of the state.

The storm expected to start Tuesday morning has been tracking farther west, increasing potential snowfall amounts in central and western Massachusetts and decreasing snowfall predictions to southeastern Massachusetts.

Forecasters say Worcester could get 23 inches of snow. Boston schools will be closed.

The snow could fall up to four inches per hour and bring wind gusts of 65 mph or higher to parts of coastal Massachusetts.

Gov. Charlie Baker urged people to take public transportation, and not drive. The MBTA will run on a regular schedule. Ferries are canceled. Commuter rail service will run on a severe weather schedule.

Amtrak cancelled Acela service Tuesday between New York City and Boston.
