AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Most Maine state offices are closing early due to heavy snow that’s causing dangerous travel conditions.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage said that state offices will close at 2 p.m. on Monday, except for those in Aroostook County.

LePage is urging all residents to drive slowly and keep a safe distance behind other vehicles. He says drivers need to make sure they’re giving snow plows enough room to operate.

Monday’s storm is expected to drop more than 14 additional inches in areas like Washington and Hancock counties. Forecasters say that southern Maine will likely see 10 inches while northern Maine will only get 3 to 5 inches.

The state Legislature also cancelled all committee hearings and activities on Monday.
