Forecasted rain and unseasonably warm temperatures today (March 14) will result in rising water levels across the Saugeen River Watershed over the next few days.
Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority says low teen temperatures today will result in a rapid
depletion of the existing snowpack which holds a range from 0 - 90mm of water equivilant.
They say soils is saturated, which means melting snow and any additional precipitation will run off quickly into local waterways, which may cause low level flooding.
There may also be a potential for ice jam related flooding on streams and rivers should significant ice break up occur.
