March 8, 2022 – To date, the spring flood outlook remains positive. December was generally mild with below-average precipitation, while temperatures in January were well below normal. Precipitation in January was also below normal but a large storm mid-January left almost 50 cm of snow on the ground. In February, both the temperature and precipitation amounts were very close to normal. Early March conditions at several RVCA and Parks Canada snow course sites indicated near normal amounts of snow for this time of year. However, some snow was lost due to mild temperatures on Sunday, March 6. Water levels and flows across the watershed are now near normal for early March.
