Rain continues today as the third major low-pressure system in as many weeks impacts southern Manitoba, closing Highway 75.

Rain will continue to lift northwards through the province today, bringing an additional 10 to 25 mm over southern regions and a further 20 to 40 mm to northern Interlake regions over the next 24 hours.

Rain may transition to wet snow early Sunday morning as surface temperatures cool to near freezing. The rain/wet snow mix will taper off from west to east on Sunday.


A flood warning remains for the Red River from Emerson to the Red River Floodway Inlet, and the La Salle River. A flood watch has been issued for the Roseau River and a flood watch remains for all Red River tributaries. A high water advisory remains for the Whiteshell lakes area, as levels on most lakes continue to rise due to the recent rain and snowmelt.

The province now expects the Red River will crest in Emerson between May 7th and 9th and at the Red River Floodway Inlet around May 14th.
