Fraser Valley/Sumas Washington – Streamflow has risen and remains high across the region. Rivers may experience a brief period of easing flow at some point today, with additional rises expected on Tuesday in response to the next storm system. Streamflow in the 2-year to 5-year range is anticipated in rivers throughout the region, however higher flows are possible. Low lying flooding is expected and may extend to overbank flooding of floodplains in areas.
