Runoff from heavy rainfall last week is working its way through rivers across the region. River levels have peaked, and rivers are now receding. In some regions flows remain very high, particularly on the Quesnel River and tributaries in the Middle Fraser basin, including the San Jose River, Williams Lake River and Bridge Creek.
Unsettled weather is expected through the week. While continued stabilization and dropping of river levels is expected over the next couple of days, organized rainfall in headwater areas later in the week may contribute to additional river rises this weekend and into next week.
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.
