The National Weather Service says some inland locations could see 8 to 12 inches of snow.
Meteorologist James Brown says most areas will experience a changeover to rain, and that will reduce the amount of snow along the coast to 1 to 2 inches.
He says greater snow tallies are expected inland, with up to 6 inches of snow in central and southern New Hampshire, and up to a foot across northwestern Maine.
