The risk of spring flooding is low in the Red River and Souris River basins, the province said today.
The flood threat is moderate on the Pembina River and Assiniboine River and in the south Interlake.
The province also said, in its first spring flood outlook of 2012, the flood threat depends on how much snow falls in the remaining weeks of winter and early spring rainfall.
Officials said flooding is likely in some areas of Manitoba's north, including The Pas, where snowfall has been more significant and soil moisture is above average.
The risk of sudden flooding due to ice jams is also low mostly due to the mild winter and thinner ice conditions.
This province's spring flood forecast will be updated in late March when further precipitation and weather data is available.
