FLOOD WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR THESE LOCATIONS IN THE SOURIS
RIVER BASIN...

THE SOURIS RIVER NEAR FOXHOLM...TOWNER...BANTRY...AND
WESTHOPE...AS WELL AS WILLOW CREEK NEAR WILLOW CITY.

THE CUT IN DISCHARGE FROM LAKE DARLING TO BELOW 400 CFS HAS BEEN
POSTPONED TO TUESDAY. THIS WILL CAUSE THE SOURIS RIVER NEAR
FOXHOLM GAGE TO FALL BELOW FLOOD STAGE LATE TUESDAY EVENING TO
EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. WATER LEVELS IN THE RURAL MINOT AREA WILL
BEGIN DECREASING ON WEDNESDAY WITH AREAS DOWNSTREAM OF MINOT
BEGINNING TO FALL OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. FARTHER
DOWNSTREAM...IN THE TOWNER AREA...WATER LEVELS WILL EXPERIENCE
ONLY MODEST DECREASES AS IT WILL TAKE TIME FOR EXCESS WATER TO
DRAIN OFF THE FLOOD PLAIN EVEN ONCE THE LOWER RELEASES FROM LAKE
DARLING ARE IN THE AREA. NEAR BANTRY...THE SOURIS RIVER CONTINUES
A VERY SLIGHT RISE THROUGH THE WEEK EVEN THOUGH THE SOURIS RIVER
NEAR WESTHOPE HAS ALREADY ESTABLISHED A SLOW BUT STEADY DOWNWARD
TREND. ELSEWHERE...WILLOW CREEK NEAR WILLOW CITY IS FALLING BUT
EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE FLOOD STAGE THROUGH THE WEEK. THE CURRENT
WEATHER FORECAST FOR THE REGION SUGGESTS LITTLE TO NO RISK OF
ENOUGH RAINFALL CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SIGNIFICANT RUNOFF.
