Episode Narrative This flood event began for many counties in late March, then continued through April and into May. After the winter storm event that dumped up to two feet of snow over portions of the region from March 29th through April 1st, temperatures remained below normal through the tenth of the month. Luckily, there were no other big rain or snow events through this time. However, being early April, the snowpack left on the ground did continue to melt. The remaining snowpack was deepest across the Devils Lake region, the far southern Red River Valley, and in the Sheyenne River Valley. The nearly two feet of new snow in the late March winter storm event caused additional overland flooding and river rises in the southern Red River Valley. Water levels also remained high along the mainstem Red River. The rest of the month of April continued with below normal temperatures, while the climate reporting site at Fargo measured below normal precipitation amounts.
