Flooding & Wildfire Preparation

Conditions throughout the province traditionally present two primary threats for the spring.

The first of these is the potential for flooding caused by runoff. The current snow pack in much of the province is well above normal for this time of year and this could lead to flooding impacts, depending on spring conditions.

The second potential threat is for wildland fires in the south-central area of the province. Due to near-drought conditions and a heavy build-up of fuel, these areas will likely remain at high threat for fires until green-up.
