The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency (SWA) says 20 to 40 centimetres of snow between March 3rd to 5th has boosted more areas into the "near normal" runoff category.
"One precipitation event can change things in the blink of an eye and that's kind of what we've seen here," says SWA spokesperson Patrick Boyle.
A below normal runoff is still expected in the Kindersley, Rosetown, Outlook, Swift Current and Moose Jaw regions. Additional late winter and early spring precipitation is still necessary to improve topsoil and subsoil moisture conditions.
It is a different story in the northeast with above normal runoff anticipated for the Melfort, Nipawin, Hudson Bay and Prince Albert regions. At this point though, no spring flooding is anticipated.
