In Maine, accumulation could reach over a foot or more.

Massachusetts could see up to 7 inches of snow with poor travel conditions through tomorrow.

New Hampshire is expecting 5-8 inches of snow, possibly higher in the mountains, with temperatures in the 30s in the morning, shifting to the 40s in the afternoon that should begin to melt off some of the accumulation.

Snow is also possible in portions of northern New York and Vermont. Michigan will also start the morning with snowfall, but it should quickly begin to melt off early in the day.
