A large area of heavy wet snow has blanketed the Red River Basin but is the added moisture enough to bump up the flood threat?   Tom Grafenauer of the National Weather Service office in Grand Forks says – maybe.   Grafenauer says flood models do take into account additional precipitation.  He says the rate of snowmelt will go a long way in determining the actual flood threat.  Snow-water equivalents were higher in the Southern Red River Valley.

Temps are expected to remain below average over the course of the next week.   The eight to 14 day outlook suggests above normal temps and below normal moisture through April 28th.
