  THESE HIGH WATER NOTICES INCLUDE FORECASTS FOR...

  RED RIVER AT FARGO.

.RECENT SNOW MELT RUNOFF IS CAUSING THE RED RIVER AT FARGO TO RISE.
THE LATEST FORECAST STILL KEEPS THE RIVER LEVEL BELOW MINOR FLOOD
STAGE. HOWEVER...MINOR RISES WILL CONTINUE THE NEXT DAY OR TWO
BEFORE A SLOW FALL. ICE IS STILL PRESENT IN THE RIVER AND MAY CAUSE
WATER LEVELS TO RAPIDLY FLUCTUATE AS IT MOVES THROUGH THE CHANNEL.

THIS FORECAST IS FOR A 7 DAY PERIOD...THE HIGHEST STAGE INDICATED
  MAY NOT REFLECT THE CREST FOR THIS EVENT.

  FORECASTS ARE UPDATED DAILY AND STAGE VALUES WILL CHANGE AS NEW
  WEATHER AND RIVER INFORMATION IS USED. RIVER FORECASTS USUALLY USE
  24 HOURS OF EXPECTED PRECIPITATION BUT DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION
  IT MAY INCLUDE PRECIPITATION EXPECTED THROUGH THE NEXT 72 HOURS.


A HIGH WATER NOTICE IS ISSUED WHEN RIVER LEVELS ARE HIGH BUT ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW FLOOD STAGE FOR THE FORECAST PERIOD.

SAFETY MESSAGE...TURN AROUND, DON`T DROWN...

 - DON`T TRAVEL THROUGH FLOODED AREAS!

THIS FORECAST DOES NOT ACCOUNT FOR ICE JAMS THAT CAN
QUICKLY RAISE LOCAL RIVER LEVELS WITH LITTLE OR NO NOTICE.

 - PERSONS LIVING IN THE RED RIVER BASIN SHOULD MONITOR RIVER
   LEVELS WHILE THE RIVER IS IN...OR NEAR...FLOOD.
