Flood Warnings and Advisories
South-east Region - High Streamflow Advisory (MAINTAINED) – Boundary
ISSUED: 1:15 PM May 14, 2020
The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a High Streamflow Advisory for:
- Boundary Region including the Kettle River, West Kettle River, Granby River and tributaries
Rivers have remained high through the region due snowmelt rates and some rainfall events over the past week. Snowmelt from mid-elevations is beginning to ease as areas become snow-free and it is expected that the peak runoff from snowmelt is currently underway.
River levels have remained stable over the past 2-3 days with drier conditions and easing temperatures. Flows are expected to remain high but stable over the next few days. Later this weekend and into early next week a pattern of unsettled weather is expected, with the potential for heavier amounts of precipitation. This may lead to another period of increased streamflow Sunday through Tuesday. At this time hydrologic modelling is indicating that flows through the Kettle and Granby Rivers should remain near or below 2-year to 5-year return period flows.
The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the situation and provides updates as conditions warrant.
