FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The first National Weather Service flood outlooks for the season in eastern North Dakota show a low risk of significant flooding in the Red River and Devils Lake basins.

The outlook released Thursday says soil moisture at freeze-up was near normal to below normal, and that precipitation in November, December and January is below average. The snowpack in the region is near normal to below normal.

The National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center expects February, March and April to have warmer-than-average temperatures and precipitation that is near normal to slightly below.
