The Northeast was concerned about floods as heavy rain once again stretched from eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey to New York.

Heavy rain and melting snow could cause flooding in the same areas hit last week. Many rivers and streams are still high after a recent rain and snowmelt combination.

Up to two inches of rain was expected, and flood watches were posted from Pennsylvania to Maine.

By Wednesday morning, snow was falling from western New York southward through the Appalachians.

Parts of the Adirondacks could see a foot of new snow, according to forecasters.
