North Thompson

The rain expected over the Central Interior this week could result in flows experienced in 1972, according to the River Forecast Centre.

Environment Canada is calling for 20 to 40 mm of rain over the course of Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday. Regions in the North Thompson could receive between 50 and 70 mm of rain, states the latest update from the province. However, there is some uncertainty around how much rain will come down.


Wasn't the 1972 flood pretty significant? I remember seeing the flood marker monument in riverside park a while back and I think 1972 was the highest of the 20th century.

I found a picture of it and yeah 1972 was the highest. It has nothing on 1894 though! I can't believe it got that high.
