...Ice jam flooding will continue across some rivers in Maine and
New Hampshire today...

.The precipitation will continue to end this morning across much
of the region. However, the combination of the warm temperatures,
snowmelt and heavy rainfall from last night will allow for rises
on area rivers. These rises may allow for the break up of ice and
additional ice jams to form. Rapid changes in river levels will
continue today.
