The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Upper Fraser River.

This includes areas from Prince George, and upstream tributaries through the Robson Valley.

According to the BC River Forecast Centre, flows have remained elevated over the past week due to on-going snowmelt and runoff from precipitation.

Rainfall over the past two days in the headwaters is leading to rising river levels throughout the tributaries in the Upper Fraser, with 10-25 mm of precipitation being observed in most areas.

The Centre added that river levels, are approaching, or are at two-year return period levels, and additional rises are expected through Thursday in the two-year to five-year range.

The BC River Forecast Centre is advising flows should some see some easing on Friday, but warming temperatures could bring a prolonged period of higher flows this weekend and next week.
