NVCA Flood Outlook

Weather Conditions

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority advises that temperatures are forecast to reach 12 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, with daily highs expected to remain near or above freezing for the rest of the week. Rainfall amounts of approximately 25mm are forecast for both Family Day Monday and Tuesday, with an additional 5 mm on Wednesday. Warmer than normal temperatures late last week has caused snowpack to begin to melt.

Issues

The forecast warmer temperatures will continue the melting of snowpack resulting in an increase in water levels throughout the watershed. The forecast significant rainfall over three days will also contribute to increase in water levels. Stream banks can be slippery and unstable, which combined with extremely cold water temperatures can create hazardous conditions around our rivers and streams. There is also the potential for ice jams and localized flooding. No major flooding is anticipated at this time.

Actions

Hazardous conditions exist around all waterbodies, as there is a high risk of life- threatening injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water. The public and especially children are advised to stay away from all waterbodies.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority continues to monitor river and stream conditions and will issue additional messages as conditions warrant. This Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect until 4:00 p.m., Friday, March 2, 2018.

TRCA Flood Outlook

Weather Conditions

Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting 25-40mm of rain for Toronto and surrounding area from Monday through to Wednesday Morning. Most of the rain is expected to fall on Monday evening through Tuesday morning, with 10-20mm forecast for Toronto and 20-25mm further North and North-West of Toronto. Temperatures are expected to rise above 0°C on Monday, reaching double digits on Tuesday through Wednesday morning before falling back below zero on Thursday.

Snowmelt caused by the warmer temperatures, in combination with the forecast rainfall will result in a high volume of runoff and increased water levels in rivers and streams in TRCA's jurisdiction. In addition, many of our rivers and streams are still covered in ice, and ice break-up is expected to occur on Monday through Thursday. Ice-jams could develop near culverts, bridge piers, and meanders, which could aggravate localized flooding. There is a potential for localized flooding due to the forecasted rainfall, snowmelt, and potential for ice-jamming on Monday through Thursday.

Issues

All rivers within the GTA may experience higher flows and water levels, resulting in potential flooding and hazardous conditions. Ponding may occur in low-lying areas. The combination of slippery and unstable banks, cold water temperature, and the potential for ice jamming could create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies. All shorelines, rivers and streams within the GTA should be considered hazardous.

Actions

Please exercise caution around all bodies of water. Please alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities. Please keep children and pets away from the slippery and unstable banks. Recall that ice conditions on watercourses within TRCA's jurisdiction can change rapidly. Persons should stay well away from watercourses, even if they appear to be frozen over. We are continuing to monitor conditions.

This Flood Outlook Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Thursday, February 22rd, 2018. TRCA will continue to monitor the weather and watershed conditions and provide an update should the watershed conditions escalate to more severe conditions.

NVCA Flood Watch | High Flood Potential

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority advises that the Flood Watch issued February 20, 2018 is continued for the Lower Nottawasaga River, including all areas downstream of Angus. The Flood Watch for the Upper and Middle Nottawasaga River is downgraded to a Flood Outlook Statement.

Weather Conditions

Approximately 20-40mm of rain has fallen across the watershed in the past week. Temperatures are forecast to remain above freezing through the week ahead.

Issues

Water levels in most rivers and streams are receding but remain elevated as a result of recent rainfall and snowmelt. The Nottawasaga River downstream of Angus to Wasaga Beach is expected to continue to rise through the weekend. Any additional rainfall on frozen or saturated ground will further increase water levels in area streams. Where river ice is still present, there is the potential for ice jams. Water could overflow banks and cause flooding in some areas. Widespread flooding is not anticipated at this time.

Actions

Hazardous conditions may exist around all waterbodies, as there is a high risk of life-threatening injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water. The public and especially children are advised to stay away from all waterbodies.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority continues to monitor river and stream conditions and will issue additional messages as conditions warrant. This Flood Watch Statement will be in effect until 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
