September 16, 2018 : Shuswap Update

 *** NEW ***    Follow us on Facebook for pictures, comments, and more...

Fall has definitely come to the Shuswap. The weather turned wet and temperatures dropped into the single digits overnight. On and off rain can be expected for at least another week and daytime temperatures will likely not exceed the mid teens. Nighttime remain in the 4C to 6C range and could reach early morning frost in higher elevations.
Nighttime temperatures in mid-range and higher elevations have already dropped well below freezing and, on two days of last week, periods of snowfall has been recorded in the early evening hours. However, the snow did not stick to the ground but current trends do point to an early winter for this year.
With lots of water entering and exiting the lake, lake levels have been fairly steady in the past week. The water is getting colder though but still holding on at around 15C. Boat traffic on the lake has died down to only a few fishing trips. Naturally, public beaches are now mostly empty and many seasonal businesses have started cleaning up for the winter closure. Time has sure gone quick this year...

As of tomorrow I will be out of the area and high up in the mountains for at least a week. Therefore, lake level updates will be rather sporadic at best if I can find a cell signal. Daily lake measurements are done and this web site shall be properly updated after my return.
We have received this picture today, taken on September 9, 5:15PM, near the Sunnybrae shoreline. It is described as groups of long, white string-like substance with organic appearance and could potentially be some sort of algae not seen before on Shuswap Lake.
We have not seen such strings and have no clue what it could be. If you can identify those string-like substances, please share it with us on
