    A storm hitting areas that were severely impacted by Sandy will bring accumulating snow to northern New England Wednesday night into Thursday.

    The northward progress of the storm's moisture will balance out with dry, cold air in the region.

    The heaviest snow will take aim from southern and central Vermont to central New Hampshire, closer to the storm's moisture supply. As a result of this dry air, moisture confluence zone, a rather abrupt northern edge of the accumulating snow is possible.

    Little or no snow is forecast to fall in northernmost New York and Vermont, with drier air winning the battle. However, several inches of snow can fall over northern New Hampshire and portions of Maine.


    The strongest winds will remain along the coast, where mostly rain or a mix of rain and snow will fall.

    However, the early season snow, being wet and clinging, can weigh down some trees and power lines across the interior.

    Wind gusts near the coast will be that of a moderate nor'easter and can reach 50 mph, which can also cause a few power outages.


    As is the case with many early season snowstorms, road conditions will vary from wet to slushy and snow covered.
