For the last week, the Missouri River has been above flood stage.

And, depending on the day and the weather up north, the daily forecast has fluctuated between the river climbing more, staying level or dropping off slightly.

On Saturday afternoon, the river was at 27.23 feet and predicted to reach 27.3 feet by this morning — then fluctuate slightly with an eventual drop to 26 feet by early Thursday.
