GRCA Flood outlook: high risk of spring flooding, ice conditions remain unsafe

To The Haldimand Press

The overall flood risk throughout the Grand River watershed this spring is considered high due to an above average snowpack, much of which has remained in place since mid-December, as well as the presence of ice in local waterways.

Despite the moderate start to winter through January, temperatures fell below the long-term average in February with much of the watershed seeing above average precipitation. These conditions have resulted in a snowpack with higher than average water content, and intact, but unsafe, ice conditions on many local water bodies.
