Another nor’easter could dump more snow over Maine this week

Maine could be in store for more foul weather later this week if a storm that is expected to blow east over the mid-Atlantic coast turns north toward Nova Scotia.

The latest nor’easter — which would be the fourth winter storm to hit New England this month — could “affect mostly Downeast and East Central portions of [Maine] with some snow and wind Wednesday night into Thursday,” according to the National Weather Service.

Unlike the snowstorms that passed over Maine on March 8 and on March 13 and 14, the approaching storm is not expected to dump a large amount of snow. Forecasters have not predicted specific depth ranges for the possible snowfall, but as of Monday morning, lighter amounts of snow are expected for western and northern Maine, while relatively heavier amounts would fall along the eastern coast.

“The storm track remains highly uncertain,” forecasters in the weather service’s Gray office wrote in a statement.
