The river is at flood stage at that location at 9.5 feet.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, the river was at 5 feet. Additional heavy rain forecast overnight is expected to push the river to the 7.6-foot mark early Saturday morning and remain at that level most of the day on Saturday.

Rain showers are forecast to continue Saturday and Sunday, but the river is expected to pull back to around 6 feet by 5 p.m. Sunday.
