Freshet levels were below bank full conditions on the Lower Fraser River Sunday night.
River watchers will note that levels at the Mission gauge were at 4.928 metres as of 6 p.m. on June 7.
Although steady rain was hitting the Eastern Fraser Valley on Monday morning, precipitation levels are not expected to create any flood hazards, or threaten any flood protection infrastructure.
“Bank full conditions” are when the river elevations have risen to fill the natural river banks but not yet spilling over into the flood plain areas, which is always a springtime concern in communities in the flood plain across the Fraser Valley.
Water flows would have to reach six metres at Mission to see any flooding into the unprotected areas.
The peak freshet was forecast for June 4-5, and has not gone much over five metres so far.
