Climate Projections for the BC Northeast Region

2019 – Fraser Basin Council

In recent years, communities of Northeastern British Columbia have witnessed a number of extreme weather events — and these are expected to become more frequent under a changing climate. Related impacts, such as flood, wildfire, drought and erosion, can critically affect the region’s infrastructure, economy and community. In June 2019, the Northeast Climate Risk Network completed the “Climate Projections for the BC Northeast Region” report to be a helpful science-based resource for communities in planning for future climate change. This report was developed in collaboration between 6 local governments, including: the District of Chetwynd, City of Fort St. John, City of Dawson Creek, Village of Pouce Coupe, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality and the District of Tumbler Ridge. Contributing authors include the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) and Pinna Sustainability. In the report, climate projections for the 2020s, 2050s and 2080s are offered. The report covers summer temperature indicators, winter temperature indicators, precipitation indicators, hydrology and regional impacts.
