More Precipitation Expected Over the Next 48 Hours
The Hydrologic Forecast Centre of Manitoba Infrastructure is issuing a flood watch for both northwest and southeast Manitoba including the Whiteshell lakes area today.
The precipitation system over the weekend brought up to 155 millimetres of rain in areas of southeast Manitoba and up to 25 mm in areas of northern Manitoba.
Another system moving toward Manitoba could bring an additional 30 mm of precipitation in these areas over the next 48 hours.
A flood watch is issued for northwest, southeast and the Whiteshell lakes areas as levels have started to rise in local rivers and streams and could bring localized overland flooding of low-lying areas.
