Subject: New River Forecast and Warning Services for stream gage at
Milford New Hampshire on the Souhegan River effective 1600
Coordinated Universal Time on Tuesday August 16 2016

The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Gray ME, in
collaboration with the Northeast River Forecast Center, announces
that the Souhegan River at Milford New Hampshire will become a River
Forecast Point effective 12 Noon EDT Tuesday August 16 2016.

The Souhegan River at Milford gage is located off Elm Street (Route
101) near the Wilton town line.  Currently, observed stage data is
the only data available for the Souhegan River at Milford. Beginning
August 16, the National Weather Service will issue River Stage
Forecasts for the Souhegan River at Milford once daily during normal
and low flow conditions, and more frequently as conditions warrant
during high water or floodings.

These forecasts will be included in the Daily River and Lake Summary
text product (PWMRVDGYX) produced by the National Weather Service in
Gray ME between 1 and 2 PM daily. In addition, forecast hydrographs
for the Souhegan River at Milford will be available on the NWS Gray
web page at http://weather.gov/Gray (via the option "Rivers and
Lakes") and also via the web site http://water.weather.gov.

Providing river stage forecasts, and flood Warnings for the Souhegan
River at Milford will contribute to the National Weather Service
mission, to provide weather and water services to protect lives and
property.  Flood warning services are already being provided for the
Souhegan River at Merrimack.
