There is increased concern about flooding in some parts of B.C after the latest snowpack readings from the B.C government.
The B.C River Forecasting Centre says, average snowpacks around the province are 19 per cent above average.
The North Thompson Basin is five per cent above normal and the South Thompson 11 per cent.
City of Kamloops Utility Services Manager Greg Wightman says, the next two months will tell the tale, flooding or not.
“The snowpacks we were seeing in the last update were the North and South Thompson both sitting both at around that 100 per cent of seasonal average which is higher than last year. The real tell tale factor is going to be what happens throughout March and April.”
The Okanagan is virtually drowning in snow, with snowpacks more than 40 per cent above normal.
Most snow packs in the North Coast and Interior increased by 10% or more from February 1st, with data from 133 snow courses and 78 automated snow weather stations around the province.
