New Year’s revelers in Maine should be prepared for some snow, freezing rain, and rain.

The storm will bring mainly rain along the immediate coast and southernmost Maine but snow and a wintry mix is expected for inland areas before changing to rain.

A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at 9 p.m. Monday until Tuesday morning for areas away from the immediate coast with slick travel expected.

The mountains and northern Maine will pick up several inches of snow.

Light accumulations are expected at the coast.

However, freezing rain and sleet mixing in could make for some icy roads, especially away from the coast.

We’ll see some leftover rain/mix during the morning on New Year’s Day, then clearing skies.

Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 40s with winds picking up through the afternoon.

Brighter and quiet conditions will move in for the middle of the week but it will be much cooler with highs only in the 20s to around 30 and overnight lows dropping below zero for some inland towns Wednesday night.

Another wintry mix looks to move in for the end of the week.
