GRAND FORKS, ND (AP) - The National Weather Service says the chances of major flooding in the Devils Lake region of northeastern North Dakota remain high.
 
The outlook released Thursday is predicting a 3- to 4-foot rise on Devils Lake, with a 10 percent chance the lake could exceed its record level of 1,454.3 feet in June 2011.
 
Weather service meteorologist Greg Gust says there's about 10 to 20 inches of heavy, wet snow in the Devils Lake Basin and the far northern Red River Valley. Only trace amounts of snow remain from Grand Forks and point to the south.
 
Gust says the overall risk of flooding in the Red River Valley remains normal because of the possibility of heavy snow or rain in the next month.
 
The next outlook is scheduled later this month.
