The river was at 5,500 cubic feet per second at the Glenwood Bridge Wednesday morning, about half a foot below flood stage, according to the National Weather Service and U.S. Geological Survey.

The Boise River peaked Monday at 6,000 cfs, still not quite flood stage (7,000 cfs).

Though there has been minor flooding along lower portions of the Boise Greebelt, the river is not expected to flood in the immediate future, according to NWS.

The river is still fast-moving, cold and hazardous. Authorities still urge residents to avoid the river and its banks.
