HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Another shot of wintry weather is heading for the Northeast, with a foot or more of snow possible in New England.

The snow and ice storm is expected to slow weekend travel by air, rail and highway and has utilities and airports on alert.

The National Weather Service says 6 to 12 inches of snow are expected from Saturday to Sunday in New England. Up to 14 inches are possible along the Maine coast but as little as 2 inches on Cape Cod. Areas north and west of New York City and interior Pennsylvania also could get 8 inches or more.

Sleet and freezing rain are also forecast as the storm is expected to moves from southwest to northeast.
