Friday’s storm frosted a layer of fresh white snow across the northern half of Maine. Hardest-hit were Hancock, Penobscot and Washington counties, with about 12 inches reported in several locations, acccording to the National Weather Service.

Lighter accumulations were reported in Aroostook and Piscataquis counties. The National Weather Service says Mainers can expect another dusting of snow on Sunday, and then a more significant storm on Monday that could leave another foot of snow north of Houlton and lesser amounts in the Bangor area and Down East. Snow may be mixed with rain and sleet in southern parts of the state.

Meanwhile, temperatures will remain chilly but seasonal — in the single digits and low teens Saturday in the Bangor area and along the coast, and dropping below zero overnight in Aroostook County.
