New Hampshire’s week of whirlwind weather continues.

In the past week or so, the state has seen a deep freeze, a warming spell accompanied by significant rainfall, pockets of flooding, and a return to cold. Now, another storm is moving into the region, bringing a projected 2 to 6 inches to Concord between Tuesday night and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Heavy rain and ice jams that contributed to some weekend headaches in northern New England have passed.

One neighborhood in Littleton dealt with rising water on Sunday, and homes were evacuated in northern Vermont. In Maine, the Kennebec River spilled its banks in Augusta, flooding several parked cars.

By Monday, all rivers had dropped below flood stage. Bob Marine from the National Weather Service said river levels were still trending downward.
