STATEWIDE (WGME) -- While the nor’easter will not be a direct hit in Maine, snow, wind, and coastal flooding are expected Wednesday evening through Thursday morning.

Snow develops Wednesday evening and ends early Thursday morning. Most of the accumulation will happen between 5 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday.

The highest amounts of snow are expected south and coast.

Most of the region should expect 3-6 inches.

Slightly higher amounts of 4-8 inches are possible in York County and southern New Hampshire.

Lighter amounts of 1-3 inches are expected inland and the mountains.

Since Maine is on the edge of a complex storm, this forecast will probably need updates in the coming days.

The winds won't be as strong as the last storm, but peak gusts of 30 to 40 mph are expected late Wednesday into Thursday.

The most significant high tide is at 2:55 a.m. Thursday.

10.2 feet plus surge should result in minor coastal flooding and beach erosion once again.

Steady snow should move out around daybreak Thursday.

Some snow showers are possible throughout the day, but most of the day will showcase just clouds and wind.
