Snow Map (WGME)

STATEWIDE (WGME) -- The first snow storm of February will be a fast mover.

It will however bring a solid thump of snow making for tricky travel due to snow covered roads and poor visibility.

Plan on whiteout conditions and slick roads during the evening commute

Here's how this one is expected to evolve.

TYPE

It will be all snow for most of the area.

A mix and change to sleet and freezing rain is likely in southern York County, and coastal Maine by the evening Wednesday.

Even there though, mostly snow should be expected.

TIMING

The snow develops between 10 a.m. and noon.

The snow is expected to end between 10 p.m. and midnight Thursday.

It's going to be a quick hitter with probably no more than 10 to 12 hour of snow.

HOW MUCH

It appears most of the area will pick up 8 to 12 inches of snow.

5 to 8 inches in areas that see some a period of sleet and freezing rain.

WIND

Wind is not expected to be major factor during the storm.

Winds will pick up out of the northwest gusting 20 to 30 mph in the wake of the storm Thursday.

COASTAL FLOODING
