Western And Central Hillsborough Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:19 AM EDT on April 19, 2015

... Flood Watch in effect from Monday evening through Wednesday

The National Weather Service in gray has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of southern New Hampshire... including
the following areas... Cheshire NH... Hillsborough NH.

* From Monday evening through Wednesday morning

* low pressure will develop off the mid Atlantic coast on Monday
and move northeastward into the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. At this
time it looks as though this low will produce anywhere between 1
to 2 inches of rain across much of the area... with locally
higher amounts possible. The heaviest rainfall should occur
Monday night... but runoff and additional snowmelt will keep the
threat for flooding going through at least Tuesday night.

* 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. Additional
ice movement is likely as well where ice remains on rivers.
Urban and poor drainage flooding is also expected... especially
Monday night.

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.
