Winter storm could dump up to 8 inches of snow over Bangor

Another winter storm is forecast to hit the state Monday night into Tuesday with significant snowfall.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the state from Portland to Caribou from 7 p.m. Monday to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Meanwhile, portions of the western mountains and the Down East coast have been placed under a winter weather advisory through 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Winter storm could dump an inch of snow an hour over parts of Maine

A major winter storm developing in the Northeast had already caused delays to begin at airports in New Jersey and New York City by Sunday afternoon, but many Mainers seemed to be taking the winter weather predictions in stride.

But that could change as soon as the first flakes are spotted falling from the sky, according to one hardware store manager.

Ryan Case, a manager at Calais Ace Home Center, said that other than selling “a bunch of salt” on Sunday morning, there hadn’t been a run yet on shovels, snow rakes and other winter necessities.
