OGDEN -- The weekend's rise in temperature did not lead to a rise in flooding.
Weber County Emergency Preparedness Director Lance Peterson said officials continue to monitor the situation.
"We haven't had any problems yet," Peterson said.
Even without higher water levels, the National Weather Service has a flood warning in effect until this evening for northern Morgan, northeastern Davis and central Weber counties.
The Weber River is at 27.5 feet, which is 6 inches above flood stage. This is a drop from the 28-foot stage where it was last week. The river is forecast to remain above flood stage through mid-June.
"Hopefully we won't get back to that 28-foot level for right now," Peterson said.
According to the National Weather Service's flood warning, if the Weber River is at flood stage, flooding will impact low-lying fields and roads from Echo Reservoir to the mouth of Weber Canyon, including the areas within the cities of Uintah and Morgan.
Damage can be expected to the levee system protecting property near Plain City, and the levee system is in danger of failing, the warning said.
As long as the temperatures do not rise too high, the warm weather is beneficial to the snowpack.
"We need to melt it off, but we don't want to melt it off too fast," Peterson said. "So far, so good.
For residents, the National Weather Service advises that a flood warning means flooding is occurring or is imminent.
The weather service warns that most flood-related deaths occur in automobiles. Residents are also warned to not cross water-covered bridges, dips or low-water crossings, to never cross a flowing stream -- even a small one -- on foot, and to escape rising water by moving up to higher ground.
