An extended period of snow is expected to start tonight, but the snow will mostly be falling lightly during that time period. This model forecast radar simulation gives an idea of how the snow will evolve through tomorrow morning. Snow is expected to continue into tomorrow night. pic.twitter.com/1pKXwaBwlS

Southern Maine is in for a dusting on Friday, but amounts won’t build up to anything that we would consider to be a “sweater-wearing snow event.”
According to the National Weather Service, some parts of extreme southern York County could see up to 6 inches (maybe), but most of Maine will be either in the “dusting” range, or see nothing at all.
It is still looking like we'll see some snowfall tonight and tomorrow. Best chance for accumulations will be over southern portions of the forecast area. This will be something of a long duration event, with snow falling over a 24 to 36 hour period. pic.twitter.com/p8ZjqID3s7

The only thing notable about this storm system is its speed, or lack thereof. It’s likely to be a full-day slog, with snow starting late on Thursday and moving to central Maine by later in the day on Friday.
