Potential for Flooding HIGH in Manitoba

February 24, 2010 — The first flood forecast for the spring is predicting high water in Manitoba again this year.

Last year's flood season in southern Manitoba was one of the province's worst on record.

And THIS year, the Manitoba Water Stewardship is predicting the potential for high water once again.

They say it won't be as bad as 2009, but there could still be some problems. Spring runoff into the Red River will be above normal in the south, especially between the communities of Emerson and Morris. Forecasters say flooding north of Morris to Winnipeg will be closer to average.

Still, it's all dependent on the weather. Things like heavy snow, mild temperatures and intense rainfalls could all have an impact.

Wondering what else the 2010 spring season will bring? Make sure you tune into The Weather Network on Wednesday, March 3rd. We'll be releasing our Spring Outlook.
