The watershed across the northern Plains that feeds the Red River could not possibly handle another big rainstorm at this time. Most certainly that would cause a resurgence of flood waters in the already hard-hit region.

Fortunately, the two storms that will occur over the next several days are not going that way. The storm track will be from the southern Plains into the East which will prevent any more substantial precipitation across the northern Plains.
