GRAY, Maine — In case you haven’t had enough shoveling, digging out cars and driving on slippery roads, another winter storm is expected to arrive Thursday night and continue into Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather service issued a winter weather advisory Thursday for the entire state. The advisory took effect Thursday night and was expected to run through early Friday morning in southern and western parts of the state and from mid-morning through early evening for parts of coastal, interior and northern Maine.

Friday’s storm forecast comes in the wake of snowfall that wreaked havoc on the evening commute on Wednesday and another earlier in the week that caused a handful of regional tournament basketball games in Portland and Augusta to be rescheduled.

A warm front heading north will result in a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain falling over much of the state, while the precipitation is expected to change over to rain Friday morning.

Forecasters are predicting about an inch of snow accumulation in some parts of the state, as well as a skim of ice. The mix is expected to result in tricky travel conditions for Maine motorists.
