    ...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.
