Weather Forecast:
Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for most of the week.

Environmental Conditions:
The watershed is currently experiencing higher than normal water levels. Based on current forecasts, levels are expected to decrease in the coming days.

Risks:
Higher than normal water levels may cause nuisance flooding in low-lying areas. Additionally, ice thickness can change drastically due to flows.

ACTION:
Residents are advised to exercise caution when near watercourses as flows may rapidly increase and cause slippery or unstable banks. Residents are also advised to stay off all frozen bodies of water. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

Duration:
This statement is in effect until Tuesday, January 28, 2020.

SNC monitors water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.
