A post-Thanksgiving storm is expected to drop up to nearly a foot of snow in the higher elevations of Vermont and lesser amounts in Maine and New Hampshire.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for parts of the region through Saturday afternoon in Vermont and Saturday evening in Maine.

Rain is expected to change to snow on Friday afternoon.

The storm could make travel difficult.
