After one day to recover from Sunday's snowstorm, another blast of winter will hit northern Maine and western New Brunswick on Tuesday.

Snow will develop on Saint Patrick's Day and overspread the entire region during the afternoon.  The snow will continue heavy at times through the night with strong, gusty winds and blowing snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from Presque Isle/Caribou area and southward on Tuesday until mid-morning Wednesday with 6-10 inches of snow expected.   A winter weather advisory is posted north of the Caribou/Van Buren area with snowfall totals expected to be around 4-8 inches in northern sections.

Blowing snow will continue to create travel difficulties on Wednesday.
