After six weeks of abnormally dry weather, things are getting wet in the Granite State, with a second storm set to bring heavy rainfall Sunday.

Between 3½ and 5 inches of rain fell on New Hampshire from Tuesday to Thursday, making up for much of the shortfall felt by the region during a very dry September and October.

Now another storm is approaching this weekend that could bring another inch or two, producing small-stream flooding.

“We are expecting a robust system to come into the area Sunday night into Monday, through central Massachusetts into New Hampshire,” said Andy Pohl, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.

“It’s still quite early to tell but this is a nor’easter coastal storm,” he said. “We expect a fairly widespread 1 to 2 inches.”
