A flood watch is in effect for parts of New Hampshire on Thursday, March 7, 2024.

Most of New Hampshire is under a flood watch Wednesday night into Thursday.

The National Weather Service forecasts rain and heavy winds to start around 7 p.m. Wednesday, and continue through Thursday evening. Up to 2 inches of rain are possible.

That may result in rivers, streams, and creeks overflowing.

Flood warnings have been issued for rivers in Grafton, Belknap, Carroll and Merrimack counties.

Residents in low-lying and flood prone areas are advised to avoid driving on flooded roads and to continue to monitor the forecast.

Another weather system is expected to move in Saturday and linger into Sunday.

The forecast calls for another system arriving late this weekend, which could result in snow, particularly in the mountains.

The weekend weather front could also pose a flooding threat, with heavy rain possible again in southern New Hampshire, with the potential for minor coastal flooding, according to the National Weather Service.
