ERCA has issued a flood advisory due to warmer temperatures and melting snow.

“Due to moderating temperatures that will be above freezing for the next several days, the existing snowpack will be melting and creating run-off,” says ERCA watershed manager Tim Byrne. “The snowpack present has a high water equivalency and will result in significant volumes of run-off.”

ERCA says temperatures will rise and fall above freezing during the next several days so the rate of thawing should be slowed during the daylight hours

But the potential for flooding still exists.
