... Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of western Maine and New Hampshire... including the
following areas... in western Maine... Androscoggin... Central
Somerset... coastal Cumberland... coastal Waldo... coastal York...
   interior Cumberland... interior Waldo... interior York...
Kennebec... Knox... Lincoln... northern Franklin... northern
Oxford... Sagadahoc... southern Franklin... southern Oxford and
southern Somerset. In New Hampshire... Belknap... coastal
Rockingham... interior Rockingham... Merrimack... northern
Carroll... northern Grafton... southern Carroll... southern
Coos... southern Grafton... Strafford and Sullivan.

* Through Wednesday morning.

* Low pressure will drive an occluded front across the region
today preceded by locally heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms.
This frontal system will produce between 1.5 and 2.5 inches of
rain across much of the area... with locally higher amounts. The
heaviest rainfall should occur this morning... but runoff and
additional snowmelt will keep the threat for flooding going
through at least tonight. The heaviest rainfall is expected on
the coastal plain... as well as the east slopes of the White
Mountains northeastward into the Maine foothills.

* Rivers are already on the rise from snowmelt over the past few
weeks. 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rainfall will allow some rivers to
rise to bankfull and even overflow their banks. Urban and poor
drainage flooding is also likely this morning in locally heavy
rainfall.

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.
