DEVILS LAKE, N.D. - A hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Forks says Devils Lake might have peaked for the year.

Mike Lukes says the latest outlook puts the odds of the lake rising another tenth of a foot through October at only 10 percent.

Lukes says that based on history, the lake is more likely to drop slightly.

The lake is at 1,450.5 feet above sea level. It has continued rising after hitting a record on April 29, surpassing the previous 1,449.2-foot record set in May 2006.
