A blizzard dumping snow across North Dakota and freezing temperatures in Manitoba are adding to flood threats across the southern part of that province, said a government official on Tuesday.
The cold weather, said Randy Hull, emergency preparedness co-ordinator for Winnipeg emergency services, means that no snow is melting and no water being added to the river.
By time the snow dumped in North Dakota on Tuesday melts, the crest of the Red River will have already reached Manitoba.
But the cold temperatures also mean that the ice will stay frozen on the river.
"The longer the ice is there, the more chance there is the ice jam when we have the peak," said Hull.
