Northwest Region

At the start of last week, snow cover from the recent storm remained throughout much of the Northwest Region. Highest snowfall accumulations ranged from 20 to 30 cm east of the Escarpment, from Ethelbert through to Ste. Rose.

However, warm temperatures and drying winds over the past weekend cleared the fields of snow. Fields and hay fields are just beginning to dry; no field work has begun. Field moisture levels are slightly drier around the Roblin area. Pasture growth has just begun in most areas. The delay in spring growth is increasing the concerns of available feed supplies for some producers.
