...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Maine and New Hampshire, including the following
  areas, in Maine, Androscoggin, Central and southern Somerset,
  Kennebec, Franklin, and Oxford. In New Hampshire, Belknap,
  Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Carroll, Coos, Grafton, and
  Sullivan.

* Through this evening.

* Recent warm temperatures have generated significant melting of
  snowpack. This melting combined with recent rainfall will result
  in elevated water levels on area rivers and streams. The
  elevated water levels is causing ice breakup and movement.

* The primary flood threat today will be from ice jam related
  flooding. Ice jams both form and dissolve rapidly, and may form
  at any time with little if any advance warning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
