Governor Janet T. Mills (D) has directed all state of Maine offices closed tomorrow, Thursday, February 23, 2023.  This announcement is in anticipation of a significant storm arriving this evening that is expected to bring heavy snow and sleet and create hazardous road conditions across the state.

The storm arriving this evening and continuing throughout Friday is expected to bring significant snowfall to most of the state.  The National Weather Service has forecast that southern and western Maine could see up to a foot of snow, with areas of eastern Maine and western Maine seeing as much as seven inches.  Major sleet accumultion is also expected in parts of the state.  The weather is expected to impact visibility and road conditions during Thursday morning and evening commutes.

“The snow arriving late tonight is expected to make driving hazardous throughout the day tomorrow,” said Governor Mills. “I encourage Maine people to stay safe, plan for extra time if you must travel, and as always, give plenty of room to our plow drivers and emergency first responders as they work to keep us all safe.”

“It’s 11:45 pm and it has started to snow in Portland on Munjoy HIll,” said this blogger for
