...RAIN AND SNOW MELT COULD CAUSE MINOR FLOODING IN THE
HEADWATERS...

.Recent warm weather has melted some snow in the interior
mountain areas, bringing some rises to the rivers draining these
areas. Rain through Thursday morning will combine with the snow
melt to bring further rises to rivers. Minor flooding is possible
especially in tributaries which drain eastward toward the
Atlantic. The upper Saco River and tributaries of the Androscoggin
River are most at risk, though flooding cannot be ruled out on
the northern Pemigewasset River as well as the Kennebec River.
