Alberta Environment warns about rapid snow melt on weekend
EDMONTON — Alberta Environment has issued an alert, warning parts of the province to brace for significant run-off.
It says temperatures are expected to be slightly above normal over the next few days, which will cause rapid snow melt.
Officials warn this could lead to localized overland flooding as water makes its way into streams.
They say stream levels will rise and may also cause flooding.
The province says the region from south of Leduc to just south of Calgary, as well as an area near Medicine Hat is expected to be affected most.
