Another First Alert is in effect for Monday for accumulating snowfall. A low pressure system tracking into the northeast will bring snowfall starting early Monday morning in southern Maine and work its way north. Areas along I-95 and east to the coastline could see a change over to a wintry mix and rain. Snow accumulation will be light along the coast and increase inland. Areas along the interstate could see 2-4″ and with 8″+ possible in western Maine and the higher elevations. Coastal area will most likely only receive an inch or less. A few lingering snow showers are possible Tuesday morning. In addition to snow and rain, it will be very windy on Monday. Gusts to 40 mph are possible inland with up to 55 mph gusts along the coast. This could cause blowing snow and reduce visibility.
