A storm that had already dropped up to 9 inches in Down East Maine through early Wednesday morning could bring snow totals up to a foot by the end of the day. More cold pouring into the region and the additional snow will make travel difficult through northeastern parts of Maine.

The system is spinning over the Gulf of Maine and will head just east of Nova Scotia today. On the backside of the storm, the heaviest snow will fall over eastern New Brunswick, including in Fredericton, and interior portions of Nova Scotia.

As the storm races farther north and east overnight, snow will also brush eastern Newfoundland, Canada.
