Another round of heavy rain fell across New England Thursday, especially Maine. The Pine Tree State picked up as much as seven inches of rain in the past couple of days.

It was all due to a slow-moving low pressure system that took its time exiting New England. In fact, the final showers won’t wrap up until about 11 a.m. Friday. A dry afternoon Friday and most of Saturday will be welcomed, because more heavy rain will return as early as Saturday night and especially Sunday into Monday.
As much as three to five inches of rain may fall out of the next system to approach the Northeast. The timing is Saturday night through Monday night. Since there was just heavy rainfall in this area, it will make flooding more possible due to the saturated ground. We’ll update you on that story as it gets closer.
