Just when you dig yourself out, they dump snow on you again.
Not even a week after Maine was wholloped with a major nor’easter burying the state under as much as 22 inches of snow, another storm will top that off with a fresh layer of the white stuff Thursday night into Friday evening.
The National Weather Service has placed the entire state under a winter storm watch. The weather service warned about potentially hazardous road conditions.
“Travel could be very difficult. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commute,” the weather service said in an advisory.
Forecasters are predicting between 5 to 10 inches of snow for much of the state, with the heaviest accumulation expected in the central highlands and the Penobscot Valley, according to the weather service.
The storm will be preceded by a warmup pushing temperatures above freezing and bringing a chance for rain across the state Wednesday and Thursday before changing over to snow.
Temperatures will fall again heading into Friday, creating conditions for at least a “light glaze” of ice.
