The Grey Sauble Conservation Authority cautions minor flooding of low-lying shoreline areas along Georgian Bay could result as a cold front moves through the region today.
Sustained winds out northwest between 40-50 km/h are expected to begin later today with gusts up to 80 km/h. Grey Sauble Conservation Authority says the strong winds, combined with near record-high water levels on Georgian Bay and Lake Huron will result in higher than normal waves hitting the shoreline areas.
"This event will likely be similar to the wind/wave event the area experienced two weeks ago," the watershed statement explains.
The Conservation Authority advises increased wave height could result in flooding of low-lying shoreline areas, as well as increased risk of erosion.
Southern portions of Georgian Bay are expected to be the most affected areas in the Grey Sauble watershed.
