Editor's Note: This post was updated Tuesday at noon with the latest information about flooding.

Some rivers in the North Country remain flooded in the wake of Monday's storm.

The National Weather Service says the Pemigewasset River in Plymouth peaked above 15 feet Tuesday morning. That's 2 feet over its flood stage. The Saco River in Conway also swelled about 2 feet above its flood stage overnight.

Near -flood conditions are reported on the Pemigewasset in Woodstock, and farther south, on the Warner River in Davisville.

Forecasters say much of the state saw at least an inch of rain Monday night. The town of Lincoln got more than 3 inches.

Most of the power outages in New Hampshire have now cleared up, though thousands of outages remain in other New England states.

Flood warnings are in effect as of 2 p.m. today (Monday, April 13) for parts of the North Country as a strong storm moves through New Hampshire. Forecasters say two northern rivers are expected to rise above flood stage by late this afternoon into tonight.

They’ve issued warnings for the Pemigewasset River at Woodstock and Plymouth and the Saco River at Conway. Some small streams could also rise rapidly.

The risk is due to a combination of heavy rain and melting snow.

The flood warnings are in effect until Tuesday morning. In southern and coastal New Hampshire, high winds are also expected through early tomorrow.
