The chance of heavy rain coupled with melting snow from warmer temperatures has brought the threat of flooding to Maine. Flood Watches have been issued for most of the state and continue into Saturday. More than an inch of rain is possible through the weekend. With the combination of heavy rain and melting snow, rises on the main stem rivers is likely into this weekend. Some of the rivers may approach flood stage. Flooding of small streams and low lying areas will also be possible. Rapid snowmelt in some areas may produce localized flooding on roads. A low pressure center and cold front will push into the region Friday. The first wave of rain will move across the Northeast Friday afternoon, with another round of rain Friday night into early Saturday. A second system may bring some showers to Maine Saturday afternoon and evening, with drier weather returning by Sunday. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
