March 22, 2019 : Shuswap Update

The sudden and unusually short winter came to an equally quick end. The last two weeks were dominated by continuously warm and sunny days, allowing the temperatures to climb close into the 20C range. Most of the low elevation snow is already gone and the remaining snow piles should be melted away rather soon. The ice cover on Mara Lake, Shuswap River, and Eagle River is starting to break open and it won't be long before all is gone as well. Public beaches and snow-free shorelines are already attracting an increasing number of local visitors for a nice walk in the sun. We have also seen a noticeable increase of fishing boats heading out on the lake. Weather patterns sure have taken another strange turn this year.
The winter sport season was very short and is now as good as over. The recent mild temperatures have started to melt some snow even in higher elevations and especially on the sunny side of the mountains. It has not triggered this year's runoff yet but could well show its first impact on the lake by early April. This year's overall snowpack is substantially lower than last year and therefore lake levels can be expected to be lower than last year as well.
