With what seems like the never ending Winter, plenty of us are looking West and seeing what looks like a lot of snow in the mountains.

But Provincial data show's what's up there is just a little above average.

High River's Manager of Emergency Management and Protective Services, Peter Genereux says it's something they're keeping an eye on.

"We've been following it for a while throughout the Winter and we pay attention to it and watch the trends. And right now it's maybe just above average. And the way it's trending we haven't seen anything too worrisome from that standpoint."

Genereux says they're in regular contact with the Province, which he says will increase with frequency as they get closer to what is traditionally flood season.

Genereux says in a normal year run-off alone doesn't pose a threat for flooding, but it's the rain combined with run-off that can cause problems.
