Heavy Snow to Cause Travel Woes in Maine

PORTLAND, Maine - Meteorologists say inland southern Maine will likely see the heaviest of the snow that is expected to blanket the state on the biggest travel day of the year.

The National Weather Service in Gray says five to 10 inches will fall across the state. Snow is expected to spread quickly starting in the mid-morning, moving from south to north.

Meteorologists say snow will then begin accumulating farther north sometime after noon. The far northern part of the state is expected to have less snow than the south. Portland, the state's largest city, could see eight inches.

The heavy snow is expected to make Thanksgiving traveling difficult and will likely cause delays at regional and national airports. Meteorologists say snow may not stop falling until sometime after midnight Thursday.
