...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 3 AM
EST SUNDAY...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Maine and New Hampshire, including the following
  areas, in Maine, Coastal Cumberland, Coastal York, Interior
  Cumberland, Interior York, Lincoln, and Sagadahoc. In New
  Hampshire, Coastal Rockingham, Interior Rockingham, and
  Strafford.

* From 7 PM this evening to 3 AM EST Sunday

* A period of heavy rain is expected overnight with one to one
  and a half inches of rain possible in just 3 to 6 hours. This
  amount of rain in a short amount of time will likely cause some
  flooding issues since storm drains may be blocked with snow.
  Without a way to efficiently drain runoff off the roads some
  portions of streets may become impassible if significant ponding
  of water occurs. Small streams may experience significant rises
  as well, but mainstem river flooding is not expected. The
  heaviest rainfall is expected to occur between 8 PM and 2 AM
  tonight.

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.
