The Hydrologic Forecast Centre of Manitoba Infrastructure reports the lake wind effect forecast for this afternoon and tomorrow suggests a strong wind effect warning for the south basins of Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg, with especially strong effects expected for the Victoria Beach area.
Wind speed and direction could raise levels by as much as three to five feet with the highest setup occurring because of the strongest winds. In addition, these winds can result in significant wave action on shorelines. Some ice pile up is possible.
