FARGO, N.D. (AP) _ Flood-weary Fargo residents looking for some uplifting news could look upstream.
The National Weather Service on Tuesday slightly downgraded the crest prediction for Wahpeton, about 50 miles south of Fargo. The Red River flows north.
The weather service has lowered the expected peak in Wahpeton from 17 to 16.5 feet. That's likely to happen late Sunday or early Monday.
Forecasters say the Red River in Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., should rise to near 35.4 feet by mid-morning on next Tuesday. That's nearly 20 feet above the point where the river spills over its banks.
A crest prediction for Fargo-Moorhead could be released Wednesday.
