"It'll be a difficult time to be out," warned John Cannon, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
While the storm isn't expected to move up the New England coast, forecasters said it'll still pack quite a punch.
"It will be a dry, fluffy snow so it won't take a lot. The snow tends to pile up a little quicker than it normally would," Cannon said.
By tonight, Cannon said winds will be picking up and gusting as high as 35 mph on the Seacoast.
"Wind chill temperatures are going to be a big deal coming up over the next two days," he said.
Cannon said the New Hampshire coast could see minor flooding at the time of high tide tonight and minor to moderate flooding on Friday.
