FARGO - The Red River is still above previous record heights in Fargo, but the swollen river is retreating - slowly.

According to the National Weather Service, the Red River was measured at 40.2 feet at 6:15 a.m. Sunday. That's down from 40.33 feet at 2 a.m. Sunday and the record reading of 40.82 at 12:15 a.m. Saturday. The previous record crest was 40.1 feet in 1897.

The National Weather Service is predicting the river will continue to drop through the week. However, there is a storm system moving into the area that's expected to drop some snow on the Red River Valley.
