A man walked his dog alongside Levee Park on the Hastings Riverwalk, which was flooded by the Mississippi River on Friday.

If the mostly dry weather holds for the next couple of weeks, Minnesota will avert widespread flood damage from rivers bloated from melted snow, emergency management officials said during a news conference Tuesday with Gov. Tim Walz.

Dan Hawblitzel, meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities, said that although the state is "right in the middle of it" with the high rivers, "we should continue to round the top of this event."

"We just need to keep a very close eye on the weather patterns up ahead, making sure that nothing too extreme comes," he said, adding that an inch or two of rain won't be a problem.
