If you didn't know it was January 30th in the Bella Coola Valley you could be fooled into thinking it was mid March. The thaw that started 10 days ago has continued and the temperatures staying in the +3 and 4 C range in the day. In areas where the snow has mostly gone, the frost has gone out of the ground.
In spite of quite a bit of rain yesterday it hasn't affect low river levels, because the snow line is just above the valley floor so the mountains have been getting the precipitation as snow. Grizzly
