...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY 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 Sunday evening.

* Exceptionally warm temperatures through today will generate
  significant melting of snowpack. This melting will result in
  rising levels on area rivers and streams. Additionally, a strong
  cold front will move across the region this evening producing
  locally heavy rainfall with up to an inch possible in some
  locations.

* The primary flood threat will be ice jam flooding. The threat
  is greatest in New Hampshire where temperatures will be
  warmest and precipitation amounts will be highest.

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.
