NECHE, N.D.-The Pembina River in Neche is on the decline, but rain forecast to hit the area this week could change that.

The National Weather Service in Grand Forks has extended a flood warning for the far northeastern parts of Pembina County, including Neche. The city about 85 miles north of Grand Forks has been in a flood warning for several weeks, with waters in low-lying land blocking county roads and major highways.

Last week, the Pembina River crested above 21 feet, classifying it in the major flood stage, according to the weather service. It has been on a sharp decline since Thursday, clocking in at 19.7 feet as of 11 a.m. Sunday. Without rain, it should exit the flooding stages later this week.

But the weather service said a half to three-quarters of an inch of rain could fall in Pembina County Monday night into Tuesday morning, which could change the declining river's forecast.

Neche is the only point on the Pembina River in the flood warning.
