River Forecast Centre

The River Forecast Centre analyses snow pack, assesses seasonal water supply and flood risk, and predicts flows in British Columbia’s rivers and streams. It produces a range of bulletins, maps and warnings to inform emergency managers and the public about current and upcoming streamflow conditions. 

Flood and Freshet Conditions and Advisories

During periods of high flood risk, the River Forecast Centre provides information on current and forecast streamflow conditions, including modeled forecast data, and flood advisories and warnings.

Snow Conditions and Water Supply Bulletins

Snow Survey and Water Supply Bulletins provide analysis of current snow conditions at automated snow weather stations and manual snow survey sites, and forecasts of flood and low streamflow risk. Automated Snow Weather Station Commentaries are a bi-weekly analysis of snow conditions based on automated snow weather station data. Snow bulletins and commentaries are published between January and June.
