A significant rain storm is expected to make its way to Maine on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
Portions of the interior may have to deal with some light icing from freezing rain late tonight and early Friday morning when it will be just cold enough. Temperatures are expected to warm up quickly Friday allowing for just a plain rain – and heavy at that. #nhwx #mewx pic.twitter.com/YUCVqkjwkZ

The warmer temperatures in combination with the rain are expected to melt the recently fallen snow, which could cause localized flooding of urban and low-lying areas, as well as the potential for ice jams, according to flood watches issued by the National Weather Service in Caribou and in Gray.
