Flood Warnings and Advisories
Northeast Region – High Streamflow Advisory – Quesnel River (DOWNGRADED), Upper Fraser, Middle Fraser, Fraser River mainstem
ISSUED: 14:00 July 21st, 2020
The River Forecast Centre is downgrading to a High Streamflow Advisory for:
- Quesnel River
The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a High Streamflow Advisory for:
- Upper Fraser River, including tributaries like the McGregor River, Dore River and McKale River
- Fraser River mainstem from Marguerite to Boston Bar
- Middle Fraser tributaries including areas around Williams Lake and 100 Mile House
River levels have been receding over the past couple of days, following rainfall last week and over the weekend. Flows are expected to continue recede over the next day or two. Rainfall is expected Thursday and Friday this week and may lead to another round of rising river levels later this week and into the weekend. Current modelling suggests that high flows are possible, and forecasts are expected to become more refined closer to the rainfall event.
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.
