DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — The latest flood outlook from the National Weather Service doesn't show a lot of change in the expected rise of Devils Lake this spring and summer.

The lake remains almost certain to surpass the record level of 1,452.05 feet above sea level set last June 27. The outlook released Thursday shows about an 80 percent chance the lake this year will break that mark by 2 feet, down from about a 90 percent chance in the mid-February outlook.

The weather service says below-normal snowfall through February is the reason for the slight reduction.
