    Weather officials expect minor flooding in parts of Vermont on Friday.

    National Weather Service meteorologist Conor Lahiff tells The Burlington Free Press a combination of rapid snowpack melting and rain will cause water levels to rise along Otter Creek and parts of the Winooski and Mad rivers. Lahiff says low-lying areas may be affected.

    Lahiff says a gradual freeze-thaw cycle has produced an average snowmelt so far this spring. He says heavy flooding in 2011 was caused more aggressive warming and intense rainfall.
