A winter weather advisory is in place for Maine and other New England states as a weather system brings snow and rain into the region.

The highest snowfall will be along the crown of Maine and the western mountains, where 3 to 9 inches of snow is forecast, according to CBS affiliate WGME.

Northern Penobscot County could see up to 6 inches, while southern Penobscot, including Bangor, will see little or no snow accumulation, according to WGME.

Much of coastal Maine from York to Hancock County is forecast to see rainfall up 1.5 inches.

The precipitation is expected to end late Tuesday afternoon.

On Wednesday, the state will be buffeted with high winds, which will gust up to 40 mph, according to WGME. That will create wind chills in the single digits. The National Weather Service expects the Bangor area to see a wind chill of 2 degrees, with it dipping below zero throughout Aroostook County.

Officials are warning motorists to plan accordingly. Another weather system will bring a similar mix of rain and snow later in the week, according to the Associated Press.
