The Muskoka River Watershed in the South Muskoka region remains under a flood warning from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
Ministry officials released the new details Friday morning, stating that water levels are continuing to peak in water bodies like Lake Joseph and Lake Muskoka.
Officials believe the water levels should slowly go down over the next two weeks.
However, if forecasted temperatures suddenly go up, this could lead to flooding in many parts of the region.
According to officials, snowpack east of Huntsville still has about 50 millimeters of water content, and high temperatures could cause this to rapidly melt.
The MNR will continue to monitor this snow pack and update as necessary.
