Saskatchewan’s Water Security Agency has issued its 2019 Conditions at Freeze-up Report.
Executive Director Patrick Boyle says conditions are favourable for a higher than normal spring run-off in much of southern Saskatchewan.
Boyle says areas to the north, including the Yorkton-Melville region, enter winter with normal conditions.
He adds the runoff forecast for next spring will also be impacted by actual conditions and snow accumulation through winter.
Current long-range forecasts suggest near normal precipitation and above normal temperatures for the first three months of winter.
