GRAY, Maine — Even though some Mainers spent Monday digging out from Sunday’s snowstorm, another one is closing in, according to the National Weather Service.

A second winter storm could hit the state Tuesday and last into Tuesday night, the weather service forecasted. A winter storm watch also was issued for Hancock and Washington counties Monday afternoon.

The watch will be in effect starting Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday morning, with up to 10 inches of snow forecasted to fall. Sleet is also likely in those areas.

Other parts of the state could see between 3 and 6 inches of snow.

Several communities reported seeing more than a foot of snow as the first major storm of the season hit Maine hard Saturday night into Sunday.

The most came in York County, with multiple towns reporting 16 inches of snowfall.
