The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is raising the alarm about unsafe conditions on rivers and lakes throughout the Rideau Watershed with another thaw predicted this weekend.

Temperatures are expected to climb over the weekend with the possibility of rain in the forecast early next week.

Water levels on some lakes that cannot accommodate melting snow and rain are expected to rise, the conservation authority said in a press release.
