STATEWIDE – The potential for flooding throughout Maine remains above normal according to weather forecasters and state geologists.
During a conference call earlier today, forecasters said the arrival of spring seems to be about three weeks behind schedule. With 60 degree temperatures expected tomorrow followed by rain, experts are keeping a close eye on rivers and streams.
Greg Steward from the U.S. Geological Survey says the key to flooding issues will be the amount of rainfall the state sees in coming weeks. Snowpack is deeper than normal and the amount of ice on major rivers remains high, he said.
