The weather service estimates a snowpack with water content among the highest in the last 60 years.

'For the third consecutive year, forecasters predict major flooding along the Red River of the North, which forms the state line between eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota,” the weather service reports.

A below average risk of flooding exists in most of Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana and Florida. The water supply of the Missouri River at Toston is 105 percent of average.
