DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — The latest outlook from the National Weather Service shows that Devils Lake remains likely to swamp its record level this summer.

The agency puts the odds now at greater than 90 percent that the lake will rise 2 feet higher than its record level of 1,452.05 feet above sea level set last June 27. That's about the same as the odds calculated in mid-February, before they were lowered to about 80 percent earlier this month.

The outlook shows about a 30 percent chance Devils Lake will rise 3 feet higher than its record. That's up from about 20 percent in the March 3 outlook.
