The fourth nor’easter in three weeks is going to skirt Maine and New Hampshire and leave behind up to 6 inches of snow — or maybe more — in some places.

The National Weather Service said snow will fall throughout the night, creating slippery conditions for commuters Thursday morning.

The forecast called for up to 5 inches of snow along the coast in southern New Hampshire and southernmost Maine, while the heaviest snowfall was expected in eastern Maine. The forecast there calls for 6 inches, but it could double heavy snow bands develop.

Heavier snow accumulations are expected to the south, in the Middle Atlantic.

In Maine, it’s been a snowy season with 128 inches in Caribou and 89 inches of snow in Portland. Both are far above average.
