Information On British Columbia’s Spring Flood Season – How To Stay Prepared

British Columbians are urged to take steps to prepare for spring floods to protect their families and property.

A warming trend this week is increasing temperatures to the highest level of the season with the possibility of moderate to heavy rainfall forecast for the weekend.

The risk of spring flooding is elevated across B.C., particularly in parts of the Interior and the North, due to a significant delay of snowmelt from cooler-than-normal conditions in April and May. Current modelling indicates the risk that flood conditions may emerge over the weekend within watersheds through the Interior and northwest of B.C. Check the River Forecast Centre website for updated advisories and forecasts that show specific areas of heightened flood risk.  

British Columbians are urged to follow all directions of local authorities and take steps to prepare for the possibility of flooding.
