Flood Watch issued for Howe Sound

The River Forecast Centre has upgraded to a Flood Watch for Howe Sound.
A flood watch is issued when river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed capacity. Flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers may occur.
Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to persist for up to 48-hours with forecast amounts of 75-150 mm of total rainfall for most areas over the two-day period from Friday to Sunday. Rivers are expected to rise rapidly on Friday and into Saturday in response to rainfall, with peak flows expected on Saturday. Larger rivers, including the Squamish River, will likely experience peak flows on Sunday.
The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and will provide updates as conditions warrant.
