New Year's revelers in northern New England should be prepared for some snow.

And sleet.

And some rain.

Meteorologist Mike Cempa from the National Weather Service said snow will move into the region Monday evening and most areas should be seeing snow by midnight.

He said the snow will turn over to rain on the coast and in southern New Hampshire and Vermont, while central areas could see some freezing rain and sleet. He said northern locations and higher elevations will stay snow with accumulations of 3 to 8 inches.
