A special weather statement is in effect for Portage la Prairie and surrounding areas today as more wet weather is expected.

A low pressure system is moving north from the Dakotas, which could bring 20 to 30 millimetres of rain. There is also a possibility of thunderstorms, which could bring even more rain. Some areas are already saturated due to the recent rainfall, and more flooding is possible.

This system could stick around throughout the week, but the bulk of the precipitation is expected today.
