Heavy rain and ice jams that contributed to some headaches in northern New England are in the past, and weather officials are now keeping an eye on a snowstorm.
One neighborhood in Littleton, New Hampshire, dealt with rising water on Sunday, and homes were evacuated in northern Vermont. In Maine, the Kennebec River spilled its banks in Augusta, flooding several parked cars.
By Monday, all rivers had dropped below flood stage. Bob Marine from the National Weather Service said river levels were still trending downward.
Marine said the next weather maker will be a snowstorm that starts Tuesday night and continues Wednesday. He said there's the potential for "several" inches of snow.
