The holiday season is upon us, and we’re reminded it also happens to be storm season in Maine.

A strong storm is on track to move in at the worst possible time this week, so consider altering your travel plans if possible, and leave for your Thanksgiving destination on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. We’ve got incoming rain and snow that could affect some travel.

The storm begins as mostly snow late Tuesday night in southern Maine, with moisture spreading across the Pine Tree State into Wednesday morning. The snow will eventually turn to rain for most parts of the state, although the precipitation will stay snow at higher elevations and in northern Maine.

Travel delays are still on the cards, thanks to the soaking rain and a bit of wind. It doesn’t look like we’re in for widespread power outages, though.

The storm should end Wednesday night for the eastern half of the state and clear out entirely for Thanksgiving Day. Expect around 1 inch of rain and a few inches of snow for most areas. Up to 6 inches will accumulate at higher elevations and on grassy surfaces.
