A lower, later crest?

Stillwater police chief John Gannaway in the Star Tribune this morning:

In Stillwater, the National Weather Service is projecting a lower crest to occur around March 30 or 31 for the St. Croix River. That update prompted the city to delay Thursday’s scheduled construction of a temporary levee “until we get further information,” said Police Chief John Gannaway.

“During the spring flooding season, the St. Croix River has historically been one of the last rivers in the state to crest,” Gannaway said. “We anticipate a second crest, but as [for] what level and what time frame, we are not sure.”
