Warm weather not good news for those watching Hastings flood levels
Warm weather conditions this week aren't a guarantee of high water levels this spring, but they're not easing fears of bad flooding either.
"It's not an ideal condition," said Hastings Public Works Director Tom Montgomery.
The reason it's not ideal is that snow and ice has been melting continuously, rather than intermittently.
"Ideally we'd have freezing overnight, or we'd have a period of freezing to slow things down," he said.
