From MEMA:

Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) encourages everyone to monitor the forecast for the next few days as a multi-layered storm system moves into Maine. The National Weather Service in Gray reports heavy rain combined with snowmelt, frozen ground, and snow-clogged drains will cause urban and small stream flooding. Minor river flooding may also occur, especially south of the mountains. Damaging winds of 40-65 mph are possible, with the highest gusts along the coast and the Western Maine Mountains. Power outages are likely. Minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible during the Wednesday morning high tide. Significant beach erosion and splashover is also probable.
