BANGOR, Maine — Although the official start of spring is just a day away, weather forecasters say that winter-weary residents of some parts of Maine can expect as much as 6 to 10 inches of snow Wednesday into Thursday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning calling for 6 to 10 inches of snow for northwestern Maine through 4 p.m. Thursday. The snowfall, expected to begin late Wednesday night, likely will result in tough traveling for motorists in northern Aroostook, Somerset and Piscataquis counties, forecasters warned.

Meanwhile, a winter weather advisory was issued for much of the rest of the state through 1 p.m. Thursday, including southern Piscataquis County, northeast and southern Aroostook County and parts of Penobscot and Washington counties.

Total accumulations ranging from 3 to 8 inches are expected. Some areas likely will see a mix of snow and sleet before the storm grinds to an end Thursday night, the weather service said.
