Snow Returns to New England, Atlantic Canada

Parts of northern New England and Atlantic Canada will get an accumulating snowfall at least one more time before 2013 comes to a close.

Light snow will spread over New England Thursday with a general coating to an inch or two expected across much of the region.

This snow will make for slick road conditions for those headed home after the holidays.

The heaviest snow will develop across southern Maine late in the day as an area of low pressure takes shape just off the region's coast.

Snow will continue through Thursday night, dropping a quick 3 to 6 inches before tracking across Atlantic Canada on Friday.

Folks planning to travel on I-95 in Maine Thursday afternoon through Friday morning should allow some extra travel time, especially for those traveling between the cities of Augusta and Bangor.

The heaviest snow from this system will hold off until Friday when the low spreads a swath of snow across Newfoundland, accumulating as much as 6 to 10 inches (15 to 25 cm).

New England looks to be dry through much of the weekend in the wake of this late-week snow before a new system tracks towards the region late Sunday.
