According to flood forecasters the warm temperatures on the last weekend of April are causing snow to melt rapidly, which means the possibility of water on low-lying roads.

Since the ground hasn't fully thawed, the melt is causing a lot of run off. The province said some provincial roads are being affected and may close.

Earlier Saturday the Department of Transportation closed Provincial Road 242 just north of Portage la Prairie because of overland flooding.

Provincial Road 242, located about one kilometre east of Westbourne, was had to be shut down because water was flowing over it.

Provincial Road 350, located about 16 kilometres south of MacGregor, is under a caution due to water on the road.

Officials advise checking road conditions before travelling by calling 511.

The province has issued high-water advisories for smaller rivers, creeks, and drains in southeast and south-central Manitoba.

 Water levels on the Red River have been increasing steadily over the past few days, in the Manitoba and United States portions of the basin.

In Winnipeg, the Red River walkway at The Forks is expected to go under water Saturday.
