Summary

Conditions are variable in the British Columbia / Western Boreal Forest Region, where large flocks of wintering waterfowl can be found around the Fraser River Delta and along the east coast of Vancouver Island. Winter has been dry and warm in the Prairie Region. In Alberta, temperatures and snowpack accumulations have set record extremes in some areas. Although Saskatchewan is expecting little spring runoff, wetlands may still benefit from carry-over water from last summer. Carry-over water is also supporting wetlands in Manitoba, although some seasonal basins could be in jeopardy. It has also been a warm winter in the Eastern Region, where total precipitation has varied but Ontario and Atlantic Canada have received more rain than snow.
