Today will be sunny with a high of 23C(73F).
Tonight will start clear but becoming cloudy periods late this evening. A overnight low of13C(55F) is forecast.
It looks like a nice day but the showers will return tomorrow. A local government district just west of Portage has declared a state of emergency due to local flooding. Roads in the municipality of Westborne are being overtopped and fields are flooded.
From My Basement Window
The RM of Westbourne has declared a state of emergency.
The call was made after heavy rains have led to flooding in the area. Reeve David Single says things aren't looking good right now, with water covering pretty much everything in the municipality. Single says some roads and culverts could be washed out.
He notes disaster financial assistance should provide some help. The fund will aid them in any damages to roads. Farmers can also get assistance through the fund if they have washouts in their fields. Single notes it's not for crop damage but damage to infrastructure of a farming operation.
