FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The National Weather Service says the chances of flooding in the Red River Valley remain low.

A report released Thursday shows a less than 50 percent possibility of the river reaching the 18-foot flood stage in Fargo. The service says the soils in the valley are dry and both snowpack and snow moisture are “quite low.”

The climate outlook calls for cold and dry conditions heading into spring.

The weather service says that water levels on Devils Lake in northeastern North Dakota will likely stay near current levels.

The next report is scheduled for March 5.
