A storm system bringing rain, snow and strong winds to southern Manitoba this weekend could have an impact on the province's flood situation.
Anywhere from 20 - 30 mm of rain is expected to fall along the Red River, which could cause overland flooding. The province is warning the community of Sioux Valley to protect the north sides of their dikes with more sandbags.
Winds associated with the system may cause ice pile-ups on the province's lakes.
The crests of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers are expected to be delayed until May 4. Hwy 75 road closures could reopen as soon as mid-May.
