Overflow Possible With Rain, Warmer Temperatures

Regional | by Peter Jackson  

ABCA says overflow possible in normal flood-prone areas of watershed.

The sudden turn in the weather conditions has the Ausable-Bayfield Conservation Authority paying extra attention to water levels, especially in flood-prone areas of the watersheds.

The forecast contains very mild temperatures for this time of the year, along with a prediction
of 15 to 30 millimetres of rainfall.

Those conditions are expected to last until sometime Thursday, and high water levels will persist through the weekend.

The ABCA says a major flooding event is not likely, but there could be some overflow in the usual flood-plain areas.
