    Maine, Southern Piscataquis.

    * Until 4 AM EST Wednesday

    * Total Rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 2.25 inches combined with
    snowmelt will result in rises on area rivers and streams. Ice
    jams remain frozen in place from the previous thaw, such as the
    Kenduskeag Stream, Piscataquis and Pleasant Rivers. The rain and
    snowmelt may allow ice jams to move and jam up further
    downstream tonight. In addition, there is the potential for new
    ice jams to form.

    * Water levels can change abruptly when ice jams are occurring.
    Remember to never drive through water covered roads.


    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. Please report
    any flooding to the National Weather Service.
