.Spring snowmelt continues to keep some area rivers within or near

remain within moderate flood stage. Oslo was still rising and
Alvarado was near crest. The Red River at Drayton and Pembina are
expected to reach minor flood stage in the next three to five days.
Lingering ice effects in smaller rivers and ditches off of the main
stem of the Red River may cause rapid fluctuations in river levels
over a short period of time. Generally rivers in the southern Red
River Valley were falling and sites in the northern Red River
Valley were steady or rising.


  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 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...

Safety message...turn around, don`t drown...

 - Persons in the warned area need to take steps to protect life
   and property. If necessary, move to a higher and safer location.
