The Assiniboine River in Brandon measured 1,182.74 feet above sea level this morning at 7:30 a.m.
That's about half an inch higher than it was at peak level last weekend, during the first crest of this summer's flood.
Provincial forecasters said yesterday that they expected the river to crest for the second time sometime between today and Sunday, at levels just shy of the 2011 mark, when the river reached 1,182.9 feet above sea level.
After that, water levels are expected to stay high for several days.
The second crest is the result of heavy rains in Saskatchewan, which are making their way through the Assiniboine after being drained through the Qu'Appelle River.
