...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE
SATURDAY NIGHT...

The National Weather Service in Gray has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of Maine and northern New Hampshire,
  including the following areas, in Maine, Androscoggin, Central
  Somerset, Coastal Cumberland, Interior Cumberland, Interior
  York, Kennebec, Northern Franklin, Northern Oxford, Southern
  Franklin, Southern Oxford, and Southern Somerset. In northern
  New Hampshire, Northern Carroll, Northern Coos, Northern
  Grafton, Southern Carroll, Southern Coos, and Southern
  Grafton.

* From Friday afternoon through late Saturday night

* Rivers and streams are already running high due to previous
  rainfall and snow melt. We expect another 1 to 2 inches of rain
  Friday and Friday night, with locally 3 inches on south and
  southeast facing slopes of the White Mountains and portions of
  the western Maine mountains. This will allow many rivers and
  streams to once again overflow their banks, especially Friday
  night and Saturday. The heavy rain will end by Saturday morning
  but flooding is expected to continue thereafter.

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.
