.Several forecast points along the Red River, in addition to
its North Dakota and Minnesota tributaries, are expected to reach or
exceed flood stage in the coming days.

The recent string of above average temperatures has resulted in
most of the snow cover disappearing over much of the central
and southern Red River Valley. Due to the increased snow melt
and rainfall in the 0.20 to 0.50 inch range in the Red River
valley on Monday, some locations are beginning to depict a response
in river levels.
