GRAY, Maine — Here we go again.

Only a few days after the official start of spring, a weekend low-pressure system is expected to bring more snow to Maine on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

This storm, unlike most seen this winter, is not expected to bring mammoth amounts of powder to the state. The weather service forecasted 1 to 3 inches of snow.

Higher elevations in Franklin and Somerset counties could see more accumulation, according to the weather service.

Saturday’s storm comes in the wake of a sloppy rain and snow system that made the state’s roads slick and caused widespread power outages Wednesday night into Thursday.

By Thursday afternoon, most Emera Maine customers statewide had their electricity restored.

The storm is expected to start Saturday morning and last into the early evening hours.
