Snow is forecasted to start overnight and continue through Wednesday afternoon. Several inches of snow are possible, likely leading to slick travel in the morning and evening, according the National Weather Service.

According the NWS forecasts:

• Central parts of Maine can expect snow and sleet accumulations between 2 and 4 inches with a tenth of an inch of ice.

• Northern parts of Franklin and Oxford counties could experience snow and sleet accumulations between 4 and 6 inches and a light glaze of ice.

Plan on slippery road conditions due to reduced visibility, snow covered roads and possible ice. The storm could impact the Wednesday morning and evening commutes.

The storm system should leave Maine overnight Wednesday, according the NWS.
