While early forecasts called for anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow in the Bangor area, it looks like we're in for a little more than we expected.

The latest forecast from the National Weather Service is calling for 6 to 8 inches for Bangor and up to 12 inches in Hancock and Washington counties.

There is a winter storm warning in effect for much of eastern Maine until 7 p.m. Friday.
