MONTPELIER, Vt. — The National Weather Service says up to eight inches of snow is forecast to fall across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine on the holiday.

The storm comes three days after a Friday storm socked the region and freezing rain Saturday slickened roads.

The forecast calls for the snow to begin late Sunday evening. A winter storm warning will remain in effect through Monday afternoon across northern New England, upstate New York and parts of north-central Massachusetts.

Heavy winds are also forecast for parts of the region.

Christmas Day travelers should plan for difficult conditions on the roadways, especially during the morning and early afternoon.
