... Flood Watch in effect from Monday evening through Wednesday morning...
The National Weather Service in gray has issued a
* Flood Watch for portions of western Maine and New Hampshire... including the following areas... in western Maine... Androscoggin... Central Somerset... coastal Cumberland... coastal Waldo... coastal York... interior Cumberland... interior Waldo... interior York... Kennebec... Knox... Lincoln... northern Franklin... northern Oxford... Sagadahoc... southern Franklin... southern Oxford and southern Somerset. In New Hampshire... Belknap... coastal Rockingham... interior Rockingham... Merrimack... northern Carroll... northern Grafton... southern Carroll... southern Coos... southern Grafton... Strafford and Sullivan.
* From Monday evening through Wednesday morning
* low pressure will develop off the mid Atlantic coast on Monday and move northeastward into the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. At this time it looks as though this low will produce anywhere between 1 to 2.5 inches of rain across much of the area... with locally higher amounts possible. The heaviest rainfall should occur Monday night into early Tuesday... but runoff and additional snowmelt will keep the threat for flooding going through at least Tuesday night. The heaviest rainfall is expected on the coastal plain as well as the east slopes of the White Mountains northeastward into the Maine foothills.
* Rivers are already gradually on the rise from snowmelt over the past few weeks. 1 to 2.5 inches of rainfall will allow some rivers to rise to bankfull and even overflow their banks. Additional ice movement is likely as well. Urban and poor drainage flooding is also expected... especially Monday night and the morning hours on Tuesday.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
