The CHILCOTIN RIVER BELOW BIG CREEK (08MB005) is currently flowing at 343 m3/s, which is a flow slightly over the 2-year return period. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) forecasts about 15 mm total rainfall for the Chilcotin region for the next three days. In response to this rainfall, slightly increases in the river levels are likely. However, significant rises are NOT expected in the next 10 days based on the CLEVER Model updated this morning.
The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor the conditions and update this advisory as conditions warrant.
