Heavy rainfall at the beginning of July has worked its way through river systems in the regions. Most rivers have receded towards normal conditions for this time of year. In some regions, flows are receding gradually and remain fairly 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 still possible for the upcoming week. Continued recession of flows is expected for most rivers as we transition into summer conditions. The Quesnel River and San Jose River remain vulnerable to a basin-wide moderate to heavy rainfall event.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the situation and provides updates as conditions warrant.
