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, N.H, dealt with rising water on Sunday. Homes were evacuated in northern Vermont. 

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.

In Concord, the forecast calls for 1- to 3- inches of snow Tuesday night, and a chance of a similar accumulation Wednesday.
