the rise were in the northern Red River Valley. Oslo`s river stage
was steady, while Drayton and Pembina river stages were increasing.
No rivers have reported ice within them. Very light rainfall
with a cold front Wednesday night will not effect flooding.

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 use 24 hours of forecast precipitation
between April 1st and October 1st, and 48 hours otherwise.
However, depending on the situation, they may include
precipitation expected through the next 72 hours.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
