Forecaster Expects Minnesota Flood Risk To Stay High

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) – The head of the National Weather Service in Minneapolis says he expects the outlook for spring flooding to stay high when the latest forecast comes out.

Dan Luna says the forecast due out Thursday afternoon is still being prepared. But he says there have been no big weather developments since the last forecast three weeks ago.

A thaw this week has greatly diminished snow piles around the Twin Cities, but Luna says the melt hasn’t been as big as it looks and the water isn’t yet reaching rivers and streams.

The flood risk is higher than usual across the state because of the heavy snowfall and a wet autumn.
