Two rounds of snow will impact Maine on Tuesday and Wednesday. After the snow moves in early Tuesday, a slow transition to rain and drizzle is likely first at the coast and then slowly working inland.

A few pockets of afternoon freezing rain and freezing drizzle is possible.

On Wednesday, a stronger storm will intensify in the Gulf of Maine or over the state Wednesday morning.

Morning rain is expected south and at the coast, while inland areas and the mountains are likely to experience snow.

Where it’s snowing Wednesday morning, the potential exists for some heavy bands.

Colder air will slowly start shifting east by the afternoon.

Areas that experience rain in the morning will probably end with a round of snow.

The jackpot for snow totals will be in the mountains where two-day totals should be 8-12+ inches.

Clouds may have a hard time breaking up on Thursday, but partly sunny skies are expected.

A shot of modified arctic air will arrive Friday into the weekend. Many inland towns should experience lows below zero.

All eyes will be on the track of possible sizable storm Sunday and Monday. Uncertainty remains concerning its track this far out. The potential exists for a storm in that time range. Right now, the track looks just too far south for a major impact here.
