Winnipeg and surrounding areas are dealing with flooding after the third Colorado low moved through the southern part of the province this weekend. 

Manitoba's Hydrologic Forecast Centre says streams and tributaries in most of the province may continue to rise as the runoff from recent precipitation moves through the system, but it says the rate of rising water levels is expected to slow down.

The province says 40 to 50 millimetres of rain fell in the Red River basin between Friday and Sunday afternoons.

The Red River Floodway and the Portage Diversion continue to operate to help lower water levels in Winnipeg, but overland flooding is still happening in many portions of central and southern Manitoba.

The province says the Shellmouth Dam is being operated to reduce the risk of flooding downstream on the Assiniboine River, while at the same time providing sufficient storage for water supply.
