The River Forecast Centre is ending a Flood Watch for:

  • Coldwater River at Merritt

High flows from heavy rainfall and snowmelt earlier in the week have now passed through the Coldwater River. Flows are expected to continue to ease through Friday and into the weekend.


The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor conditions and update this advisory as conditions warrant.


 A High Streamflow Advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
 A Flood Watch means that river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed bankfull.  Flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers may occur.
 A Flood Warning means that river levels have exceeded bankfull or will exceed bankfull imminently, and that flooding of areas adjacent to the rivers affected will result.
