Maine received less rain than forecast late Monday into Tuesday morning and there are currently no flood warnings for the state, according to the National Weather Service in Gray.

Portland received .97 inches of rain since it started raining at about 10 p.m. Monday, according to the weather service.

The weather service had expected some localized flooding as a combination of heavy rain, snow melt and ice jams aggravated flood conditions.

The weather service had predicted three-quarters to an inch of rain Monday night, with another half-inch to three-quarters of an inch on Tuesday.

Flood watches were announced for most of southern Maine on Monday.

“The rain is over … some of the rivers will continue to rise a little more but at this point there are no problems,” said Bob Marine of the National Weather Service in Gray. “We got a little bit less rain than was anticipated.”
