This is an Manitoba Emergency Alert. Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre advises high winds expected to develop Friday afternoon and last until Saturday afternoon. This may result in the risk of ice pile-up along the south basin of Lake Manitoba as well as shorelines near Gimli on the west side and Victoria Beach on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.
Northwest winds gusting up to 75 kilometers per hour could cause an ice pile-up at these locations.
