This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Central Highlands Maine,

Interior DownEast Maine, North Woods Maine and Penobscot Valley

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Open water flooding is a concern over the weekend and into next
week. Rainfall amounts may exceed 2 inches in spots from tonight
through the weekend, with the highest totals from Baxter State Park
north. The combination of rain and snowfall is expected to cause
significant river rises beginning Saturday night and likely
continuing into early next week. There is the potential for moderate
to major flooding, but the details on just how much rain falls and
how much snow melts makes predictions of the magnitude of the
flooding uncertain, although there is a high likelihood that there
will be some areas that experience significant flooding. Please
continue to closely monitor the latest forecasts from the National
Weather Service for possible flood watches and warnings this weekend
and into next week.


Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather
conditions according to Standard Operating Procedures.
