The BC River Forecast Centre has upgraded the Shuswap Region including the Shuswap River, Eagle River, and surrounding tributaries to a Flood Watch.

Hot temperatures since the weekend have led to significant snow melt, and rising river levels.  Thundershowers and rain over the past 24 hours has added to this runoff. Precipitation totals since yesterday have been in the 5-25 mm range, with the highest amounts of precipitation being observed in the East Okanagan, Shuswap, Kettle and West Kootenay regions.
