As flooding issues continue to plague areas around Kelowna and Kimberley, officials are keeping a close eye on streams and rivers in Alberta.
Some believe snowpack is an indicator of what the flooding situation could be like in Alberta.
Carrie Sancartier, with Alberta Environment, says it is a factor but not the main driver.
She says it's when you get a lot of rain on top of the snowpack that the runoff will enter waterways quickly and cause flooding issues.
That usually happens between mid-May and mid-July.
If needed, advisories and warnings will be issued but none are in place right now.
