New Hampshire Braces For Potential Flooding This Weekend
With major snow melt in New Hampshire's White Mountains, rivers continues to be on the rise, and could hit flood stage this weekend.
April in New England is typically all over the map, weather-wise. According to WMUR News 9, this weekend will be on brand, with multiple rounds of showers, a spike in temperatures, and lots of snow melt causing floods. Flood watches are in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon for Belknap, Cheshire, Merrimack, Carroll, Coos, Grafton and Sullivan counties. Rapid snow melt, and up to an inch of rainfall are leading to increased chances for flooding.
According to the National Weather Service, those in a flood-prone area should take the necessary precautions. Today (Friday) will see temperatures soar into the 70's for southern sections of the state. Rain showers will run throughout Saturday, and into Easter morning. However, all is not lost for the holiday, as skies are expected to clear, with sunshine for the second half of the day, per WMUR News 9.
