COVENTRY, Vt. (AP) - Rain and melting snow are keeping rivers running high in northern New England, increasing the chance of flooding.

The National Weather Service said minor flooding occurred Sunday morning along the Barton River in Coventry, Vt., and urged anyone traveling near streams and rivers to seek higher ground at the first sign of rising water.

The weather service also issued a flood watch for nearly all of Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire through Wednesday evening. After Sunday’s rain, warm temperatures were expected to cause significant snow melt on Monday, followed by more rain Tuesday.

The weather service says any flooding through Monday is likely to be minor field and road flooding, with the potential for more significant flooding Tuesday through Wednesday.
