Mainers still wracked with aches after digging out last week will need to get ready for up to another half foot of snow coming.

Most of the state has been placed under a winter weather advisory from 10 p.m. Monday through 7 p.m. Tuesday in advance of the early week storm, according to the National Weather Service.

That storm comes immediately on the heels of a Friday storm that dropped up to 18 inches of snow across much of the state on top of the white stuff left behind from a storm a few days earlier that left as much as 22 inches in parts of Maine.

Forecasts call for 4 to 6 inches of snow across a wide swath of the state from Greater Bangor up to Caribou, according to the weather service station in Caribou.

That accumulation will lessen somewhat toward the St. John Valley, where 3 to 4 inches are expected.

Similar amounts are expected across much of the western mountains, according to the weather service station in Gray.

The coast will be largely spared the brunt of this latest storm, with less than an inch of snow expected from Portland to Rockland and 1 to 3 inches from Bar Harbor to Eastport.

Unlike the last two storms, this latest round of snow is expected to be wet and heavy, the weather service office in Gray reported.
