Waterways expected to rise with hot daytime temperatures

It’s shaping up to be a week of hot weather and high water through much of B.C.

After a weekend of near 30C weather, the Horsefly River is just starting to flow over its banks at the bridge with water creeping into the day use area along the river and closer to the road.

There are currently no flood warnings, however, in the Williams Lake area, according to the BC River Forecast Centre.
