A flood watch and high water advisory have been issued for the southwestern, western and central regions of the province.
Manitoba Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre issued the advisory Sunday afternoon, saying the next 3 to 4 days could bring up to 75 to 100 millimetres of rain.
The advisory from the Forecast Centre also says areas in southwest Manitoba — including Virden and Brandon — could see up to 175 millimetres of rain during this time.
There is potential for overland flooding in low-lying areas, and small streams and creeks.
Most major rivers, including the Assiniboine and Souris rivers, are expected to remain within their banks at most locations.
