Second Red River crest possible

From the Grand Forks Herald:

The Red River at Grand Forks has dropped almost 2 feet since its Friday crest of 46.87 feet, but additional precipitation could result in a secondary crest this weekend.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Tom Grafenauer said river levels are expected to remain steady for at least a week in Grand Forks, and it may be two weeks before Grand Forks drops below moderate flood stage.

Grafenauer said the snowfall from last week will likely finish melting by Tuesday and flow into the river Wednesday through Friday, causing a second crest or an increase in river levels. On Monday, the Red River at Grand Forks stood at 44.72 feet. Levels are expected to continue dropping until the weekend, when the river could rise again to 45 feet.
