A flood watch has been issued for the Little Red Deer River and a pair of popular campgrounds could be affected.

The Alberta government’s streamflow advisory updated early Tuesday afternoon says that waters continue to rise in the Little Red Deer River and most of the other river basins in Southern Alberta.

“Water levels along the Little Red Deer River are expected to exceed known flood thresholds at Westward Ho campground and Red Lodge Provincial Park,” says the online update.

Red Lodge is about 15 km west of Bowden and Westward Ho is about six km east of Sundre.

Up to 150 to 200 mm of rain is forecast for the southwest corner of the province by Thursday morning.

Flood warnings have been issued for the entire Oldman River Basin. At Lethbridge, the river may rise six metres.
