RRV Flood Threat

RRV Flood Threat

Mar 6, 2014 at 11:16 am

The threat of substantial flooding in the red river valley come spring remains low according to the latest outlook released by the national weather service today.   n-w-s hydrologist mike lukes says stream flows are near normal and soils are still frozen three feet or more in most locations.  the best guess for a crew in greater grand forks is around 38 feet -- ten feet over flood stage.

 

Forecasters say the latest models suggest below normal temps are likely into early april but the arctic air may be done for the season.  Heavier springtime snows and rains could alter future flood outlooks but they also appear less likely.
