The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that runs between 5 this afternoon until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The Winter Weather Advisory covers Interior Hancock County, along with Central and Northern Washington County. It includes places like Amherst, Aurora, Dedham, Eastbrook, Great Pond, Calais, Grand Lake Stream, Wesley, Princeton, Danforth, Vanceboro and Topsfield.

All of those places can expect anywhere between 3 and 5 inches of snow during the 12 hour period that the Advisory is in effect, and it looks like the further east you travel the more likely you'll see higher the amounts, with Calais expected to receive up to 6 inches.

Bangor could see up to 2 inches of snow, with only up to an inch predicted in coastal areas like Eastport, Machias and Bar Harbor.

Of course with the expected snowfall, some area roads could be very slick for both the evening and morning commutes.


Overall for the Bangor area, the National Weather Service tell us to expect a mostly cloudy day with a high temperature of 34 degrees, and snow should begin to develop around 5 this afternoon.

Snow will continue until about 2 a.m. in Bangor, accumulating anywhere between 1 to 3 inches, with an overnight low temperature of 28 degrees.

Then, partly sunny skies are expected Tuesday as warm temperatures move into Maine and we'll see a high of 39 degrees.

Mostly sunny and 41 degrees on Wednesday before temps start to cool somewhat again by Thursday.
