Manitoba spring flood outlook
By Top Crop Manager
Feb. 28, 2014 - The Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation Hydrologic Forecast Centre's preliminary 2014 spring flood outlook suggests, without additional significant precipitation between now and the spring thaw, the potential for a spring flood is below or near normal in most areas. This is due mainly to near-normal soil moisture content at freeze-up and near-normal water content in the snowpack.
Winter snow levels are near normal to above normal in many areas of the province, Saskatchewan and North Dakota, with the exception of the U.S. and Manitoba portions of the Red River Basin, which are below to near normal.
