Flood Watch In Effect, As Storm Expected To Make For Wet Christmas

Dec 24, 2014

A flood watch is in effect for New Hampshire through Wednesday night into the evening on Christmas.

A storm is expected to drop 1-2 inches of rain, which may cause some localized flooding.

Hometown Forecast Services Meteorologist Gary Best says much of New Hampshire will see light rain and drizzle throughout Wednesday afternoon.

He says the heavier rain moves Wednesday night, along with milder temperatures and an increasing south wind.

“And that rain will continue for a time into early Christmas morning. It will end as we go through the afternoon. It may change over to snow across the North Country, where they could see a few inches of accumulation.”

He says any flooding would likely be in the southeastern part of the state.
