With many areas looking at above-20-degree temperatures, farmers will see any remaining snowpack leave soon.

That's the consensus among weather forecasting services, which are forecasting a strong westerly flow across the prairies.

Alberta has been the odd province out as it's had less snow to keep things cold compared to Saskatchewan or Manitoba, but that's set to equal out soon.

The combined melting will be good for farmers, so long as more moisture isn't coming down, says Weatherlogics CEO Scott Kehler.

"I think with the way things are playing out now It's pretty good for farmers. They've got a decent snowpack so that will help get them some spring moisture. Then assuming that we don't get any significant rain events in April or May, it'll probably be fairly normal seeding dates in general, so looks like a better start to the year as opposed to last year, which was delayed in many areas."

As that snow is set to melt quickly, it could create some trouble for areas that have plenty of snow.

"There's definitely a lot of flooding concerns this spring for most areas, this doesn't really matter where you live. With the rapid snow melt, we'll see a lot of standing water, especially in areas where we might have culverts that are still blocked by ice," said Kehler, "So bear in mind that there could be overland flooding as the snow melts and may have trouble flowing to drains."

Manitoba is likely to have a significant flood this Spring thanks to the snowpack that's settled in some of the southern states.

"In river valleys, probably the biggest concern would be right now would be in the Red River Valley from North Dakota and Minnesota into Manitoba where there's a very deep snow cover, especially on the US side and that's flowing north into Manitoba," said Kehler, "So we're likely to see a fairly significant Red River flood later this month as all that snow disappears."
