BC experiencing early snow-melt season
The BC River Forecast Centre says the provincial snowmelt season is a month ahead of schedule according to the latest numbers.
River Forecast Centre Head, Dave Campbell believes any risk of flooding this year is all but gone.
“From a flooding risk perspective, they are diminishing, we have probably gotten through the worst of it the last 30 days unless we see heavy rainfall.”
The Skeena-Nass River is 25% of normal while the Stikine River is just 1%.
Environment Canada is predicting above normal temperatures from the May to July period in BC.
Since May 1st, some rivers have experienced a transition from well-above normal flows to either near or below normal levels as of mid-May.
