The Grand River Conservation Authority has issued a flood watch for the entire watershed.
Warm weather and light rainfall is forecast to move into the area and is expected to result in snow melt and elevated flows in rivers and streams.
That combination is expected to push river levels higher, resulting in minor flooding in low-lying areas typically prone to flooding.
This system also has the potential to create ice jams.
The public is being reminded to be cautious around all bodies of water.
Banks beside rivers and streams are very slippery and can pose a serious hazard when combined with current weather conditions.
The flood watch is in effect until Friday afternoon.
