BANGOR, Maine – Winter weather will return to the region on Wednesday.

Low pressure will move across the great lakes region late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. A warm frontal boundary extending from this low eastward across southern New England will provide the focus for snow development on Wednesday.

Snow will begin over southern New Hampshire early Wednesday morning and work its way northward throughout the day. A secondary low is expected to develop over the gulf of Maine during the late afternoon and evening hours on Wednesday. This will bring a little extra energy to the storm system, prolonging snow across the region into the overnight hours Wednesday night.

Locations near the coast may see snow mix with sleet and freezing rain late Wednesday afternoon.

While the exact track of this storm system remains uncertain, snow accumulations of 6 inches are possible across the region.
