NWS GFK releases updated 3 month outlook
The NWS office in Grand Forks has released an updated late winter/spring outlook covering the Feb-April period. The outlook suggests that a resurgent La-Nina will give a greater liklihood of generally cooler and wetter than normal weather over the next 3 months over the northern Plains. This will increase the odds of major flooding on the Red River this spring, as a recent press release from NOAA indicates. Soil moisture levels going into the winter were high from a wet fall, and a cold and snowy winter across ND has increased the risk of high water levels on the Red come the spring melt.
