High streamflow advisory issued for two Peace rivers

The B.C. River Forecast Centre has issued a high streamflow advisory for two rivers in the Peace region.

Saturday morning, the River Forecast Centre issued the advisory for Moberly river near Fort St. John and the Pine river near East Pine.

River levels have been high throughout the week after significant rainfall on Monday and Tuesday and on-going snowmelt.

With the latest forecast from Environment Canada calling for precipitation Saturday and Sunday, with rainfall amounts in the 15-25mm river levels are expected to rise through Sunday into Monday.
The rate and amount to which rivers rise will depend on precipitation rates that occur during this weather system.

A high streamflow advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
