There are flooding concerns in British Columbia.

Recently temperatures in many areas have soared into the 20's.

As a result, significant snow-melt has occurred.

To make matters worse, an area of low pressure will move into the province today.

It has the potential to bring 10 to 20 mm from Quesnel to Fort St James. Bulkley Valley to the Cariboo amounts will be in the range of 5 to 10 mm.

There is also a risk of thunderstorms this afternoon.

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a flood warning for Nazko - West Road River. There are several flood watches in place. More information on flood watches and warnings can be found at http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/warnings/index.htm.
