More anticipated mild weather has led to the Ausable-Bayfield Conservation Authority to post its third high water safety bulletin in a little more than a week.
Temperatures are expected to get as high as plus-five by Saturday before more cold air moves in.
ABCA officials say rainfall could total anywhere between 20 and 50 millimetres between Noon Friday and Saturday evening.
Concern has been raised about the possibility of a quick snow-melt and possible ice-jams that could cause flooding in low-lying areas.
Again, residents are reminded that ice on rivers and ponds should be considered unsafe and that children and pets should not be allowed to play near slippery river and stream banks.
