The latest provincial snowpack report has Premier David Eby “really worried” about the coming summer.
The updated analysis shows the average snowpack in B-C is 39 per cent below normal.
That compares to 21 per cent last year.
Eby says if we don’t get a rainy spring and summer, we could have what he calls the “most dramatic” drought conditions we’ve ever seen.
The latest seasonal weather forecasts from Environment Canada predict a “very high” change of above-normal temperatures across B.C. through April with a “moderate” likelihood from May through July.
