428 AM EST Sat Feb 25 2017

...Ice movement and ice jams possible this weekend...

.A prolonged period of above freezing temperatures will continue into
Sunday. The combination of above freezing temperatures and
expected rainfall tonight, will result in the potential for some
ice movement and possible ice jams. However, mainstem rivers are
expected to remain below bankfull at this time.

  County. Similar rises in the Penobscot River basin in southern
  Penobscot County have potential to break up ice locally. Any ice
  movement means ice jams and sudden flooding is possible.

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

  Northern Washington, Southeast Warren, Southern Fulton,
  Southern Herkimer, and Southern Washington. In southern
  Vermont, Bennington, Eastern Windham, and Western Windham.

* Through Sunday evening

* Warm temperatures will cause snow melt and runoff which is
  expected to cause slowly rising water levels on area rivers. A
  strong cold front will track eastward across our region this
  afternoon into this evening with moderate to heavy rainfall from
  showers and scattered thunderstorms, possibly exceeding one inch
  in some areas with the heaviest rainfall across the southern
  Adirondacks. The combination of rain and snow melt is expected
  to produce enhanced runoff into area rivers, resulting in possible
  minor flooding this weekend. Flooding is also possible in poor
  drainage and low lying areas, especially where snow and leaf
  litter blocks storm drains.

* Areas of the western Mohawk Valley, the upper Hudson, the
  southern Adirondacks, Lake George Saratoga region and southern
  Vermont are the most vulnerable to minor flooding.

* 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.
