The brief squall of rain over the City Tuesday didn't deter regional river forecasters from predicting an end to the worst of flood warnings for Kamloops.
On Tuesday, David Campbell of the B.C. River Forecast Centre announced that the Thompson River system was nearly at peak levels and would not reach the crest that was previously anticipated.
"The forecast has dropped a little bit and the peak should be seen fairly soon," he said. "We were anticipating getting up to about 344.2 metres (above sea level) at the Overlanders Bridge. I believe that's a little bit below 1999 levels. It's probably 10 cm or 20 cm lower than we were saying a day or two ago."
But residents should not become complacent just yet, said Chris Duffy of Emergency Management B.C.
"Water is still high within the province and I would say vigilance is the word of the day," he said. "We still have areas of concern for the Lower Fraser, Kamloops and the Shuswap."
The City advises residents to use extra caution in all areas adjacent to riverbanks due to swift water and potential erosion risks.
A river closure issued by the RCMP is still in effect due to navigational hazards, safety concerns and erosion along the corridor.
The City's sealing of drainage catch basins may still cause low-lying areas to experience pooling on roadways during rainfall.
Crews will be available to respond and pump as necessary, and the City is directing residents to call 250-828-3461 if they are experiencing excessive pooling.
