National Weather Service officials say the flood threat for the Red River Valley has increased slightly in the last two weeks, although not enough to cause a stir among officials in the Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., area.
The weather service says there's a 50 percent chance of moderate flooding along the Red River, which would be at least 7 feet above flood stage in Fargo. Moderate flooding was listed at about 15 percent two weeks ago.
There's a 10 percent chance of a 32.5 percent crest in Fargo, which could shut down a few roads, bike paths and at least one bridge. Officials say no public or private structures would be threatened.
The weather service says the increase is due to more snow cover and the threat of spring rain.
