A flood watch has been issued by the St Clair Region Conservation Authority.

Heavy rainfall is expected to begin after midnight on Saturday, which could cause flooding in low-lying areas.

Winds from south and southwesterly directions have the potential to create a backwater effect, further elevating water levels in Wallaceburg.
