Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 9:02 PM EDT on April 20, 2015

... Flood Watch remains in effect Cheshire County and Hillsborough
County through Wednesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of southern New Hampshire... including the following
areas... Cheshire NH... eastern Hillsborough NH and western and
central Hillsborough NH.

* Through Wednesday morning

* low pressure will develop off the mid Atlantic coast and move
northeast into the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. This low may produce
up to 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain across much of the area... with
locally higher amounts possible. The heaviest rainfall should
occur tonight into early Tuesday... but runoff and additional
snowmelt will keep the threat for flooding going through at
least Tuesday night. 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 gradually on the rise from snowmelt over the
past few weeks. 1 to 2 inches of rainfall will allow some rivers
to rise to bankfull and even overflow their banks. Urban and
poor drainage flooding is also expected... especially 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.
