Bob Dylan wrote, "you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. You also don't need a weatherman to know when it's raining. But you might need one to know whether more rain is in the forecast.
Cutting to the chase, rain is in it...through Sunday, although the chance of rain drops into the 20-30% range after tomorrow. Expect showers, heavy at times, on and off all day today with the high temperature climbing to just 68°. Rainfall of 2-4 inches is possible in some areas.
Meanwhile, the National Weather service has issued a severe storm warning and flood watch for portions of Main and New Hampshire. In New Hampshire, areas in the Lakes Region include Belknap, southern and northern Carroll County and southern Grafton County, from noon today through Thursday morning:
Bands of showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop in the watch area today and continue through tonight. Very heavy rainfall rates are expected at times, with 2 to 4 inches of rain possible by early Thursday morning. This is in addition to the heavy rainfall that fell in spots Tuesday afternoon and evening. As a result, flash flooding will be possible along with a good chance of urban and small stream flooding.
Pay Attention, Be Ready
The Weather Service warns that a Flash Flood Watch means conditions could develop that lead to quick, heavy and extremely dangerous flooding conditions in areas near rivers and streams. People living in these areas are strongly advised to monitor weather reports and be prepared to evacuate if conditions are upgraded to Flash Flood Warnings, meaning that flooding is actually occuring in some areas.
Meanwhile, wind today will be steady and mild out of the southeast at 3-5 MPH. The chance of showers continues into the evening and overnight at 100% with the overnight low down to a chilly 61°. Nighttime wind will remain mild.
Sunrise/Sunset (Laconia): 6:16 a.m. - 7:12 p.m.
