PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine and New Hampshire are entering into a third day of flood watches as rain and snow melting might cause rivers and streams to overflow.

The National Weather Service in Gray says the watch will be in effect Wednesday in western and southern Maine and all of New Hampshire except northern Coos County. The service says parts of Maine received more than four inches of rain on Tuesday and lighter rain is in the forecast Wednesday. Rain might continue through early on Friday.

There is a river flood warning for the Kennebec River in effect from Skowhegan to North Sidney and south to Augusta. Forecasters say the Kennebec will likely crest around daybreak on Wednesday. National Weather Service forecasters say they expect minor flooding.
