CHICHESTER, N.H. (AP) - The rain and warmer temperatures are gone, but the National Weather Service says a handful of rivers remain above flood stage in northern New England.

Heavy rain and warmer weather Friday and early Saturday resulted in significant snow melt across the region, as well as ice dams in multiple rivers that sent water over the banks. By Sunday, water levels had mostly dropped, though a few rivers remained among flood stage.

The National Weather Service says those include the Kennebec River in Augusta, Maine, and the Barton River in Coventry, Vermont. In New Hampshire, the list includes the Suncock River in Chichester and the Connecticut River in Stratford.
