The province has issued a high-water advisory for small streams and tributaries across southern Manitoba.
Heavy rains of 30 to 70 millimetres, with possible thunderstorms, are forecast for much of southern Manitoba. Higher amounts approaching 80 mm are forecast for Dauphin and an area stretching southeast along the Manitoba escarpment to the U.S. border, the province said in a press release.
The Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation Hydrologic Forecast Centre is advising the public to monitor weather conditions and forecasts and to pay close attention to local conditions as flooding on small tributaries may develop quickly.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning of potential heavy rains beginning Thursday morning and continuing intermittently until Saturday afternoon. A Colorado low weather system is forming and moving towards North Dakota.
