FLOOD POTENTIAL UPDATE, MAY 22, 2002 – 5/22/2002 1:44:51 PM

The heavy rain warning remains in effect this morning for the East/West Kootenays and the Elk Valley. In all other areas the warning has been dropped. Rain through last night and into this morning was generally on the low side of the forecast values in most regions with the possible exception of the Kootenays. Widespread flooding problems are occurring in the East and West Kootenays and Bulkley Valley. Flooding problems in the Bulkley Valley are likely to get worse as this day goes on. The mainstem of the Bulkley River at Houston has risen 75 cm since last night and it continues to rise rapidly. Most of the major tributaries to the Bulkley continued to rise as well due to continued snowmelt and precipitation through the night. In the southeast of the province most of the larger rivers in the region rose to near flood stage overnight and with heavy rain in the forecast for today, flooding problems are likely to increase.


The major storm system that brought heavy precipitation to the southern half of the province over the past 48 hours has dissipated leaving most areas with only light rain or showers in the forecast. The exception to that is the southeast region of the province where heavy rain is still in the forecast for today with further accumulations of 10 to 20mm expected. Upper elevation temperatures dropped overnight in most regions stopping the high elevation snowmelt. Much of the upper elevation precipitation fell as snow except in the Bulkley River where snowmelt continued through the night in the eastern part of the basin. The weather for the next 3 days in the significant trouble spots of the northwest and the southeast regions of the province is showing light rain or showers to continue and of course 1 more day of heavy rain in the southeast. Temperatures in all areas are forecast to be at about seasonal normals so middle and high elevation snow will likely continue to melt during the day at least and possible through the night in some areas.


Middle and high elevation snow continued to melt off yesterday due to the relatively warm rains in the southern half of the province. Cooler air moved into most regions last night causing the high elevation snow to stop melting and also causing precipitation in many regions to fall as snow at the upper elevations. Runoff from snowmelt should be reduced in most regions of the province due to the cooler temperatures. In the eastern part of the Bulkley River Basin, some snow was reported but the snowpacks continued to melt through the night and high runoff from snowmelt will likely continue in the region today.


Widespread flooding is reported in the Bulkley River Basin as a result of the heavy rain and snowmelt in the basin. The mainstem of the Bulkley River and most of the larger tributaries continue to rise this morning and should continue to rise throughout the day today. The mainstem of the Bulkley River at Houston has risen 75 cm in the past 15 hours and it continues to rise sharply this morning. With showers or light rain in the forecast for the next several days flooding problems are likely to persist throughout the Bulkley River Basin for next few days at least. The focal point of flooding problems will likely be in the upper Bulkley River Basin around Houston.


The heavy rain warning continues for much of the southeast region this morning. Several of the regions larger rivers are running at bank full and numerous potential flooding problems are reported in the region. Cooler temperatures in the region overnight stopped the high elevation snowmelt and caused high elevation precipitation to fall as snow. Many of the major rivers of the regions such as the Bull and the Elk rose slowly or even peaked over night. If the heavy rain warning is accurate these rivers will likely begin to rise again today however if the heavy rain does not materialize today the rivers will likely begin to drop by this afternoon.


Heavy rain ended in this region late yesterday and with overnight temperatures dropping below zero at high elevation, the middle and upper elevation snowmelt stopped or slowed substantially. Tributary rivers in the region appear to have peaked and the mainstem of the North Thompson should peak this afternoon upstream and by late tonight at Kamloops. Flows on the mainstem of the North Thompson should remain well below flood stage.


To the east of Kamloops the heavy rains and snowmelt of yesterday continues to work its way through the system. Rivers such as the Eagle River will likely remain fairly high today but should begin to drop by this afternoon assuming no further rainfall occurs in the region. Given the current forecast a return to high flows in the regions creeks and rivers is not anticipated over the next few days.


With the heavy warning ended and the snowmelt stopping most of the regions rivers should begin to drop today. The small creeks and rivers in the region have likely peaked and should drop over the remainder of today. The major rivers of the region may continue to rise as the runoff water of yesterday works its way through the system but they should peak well below flood levels. Given the current forecast no further flooding problems are anticipated over the next few days.
