REGINA -- Saskatchewan forecasters say the warm, dry winter will likely mean a below normal spring run-off.
The Water Security Agency says most of the province is looking at a below normal snow pack for this time of year.
Some areas in east central Saskatchewan had more water on the landscape than normal before the winter and should expect near normal run-off.
Most reservoirs and dugouts went into winter at near normal levels and surface water supplies are expected to be adequate this year.
The agency warns it is still early and conditions could change in the coming weeks.
