November 17, 2018 : Shuswap Update

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

Winter is slowly moving into the Shuswap. Nighttime temperatures have been close to freezing this month and daytime temperatures barely made it above single digits. A lot of rain has been dumped into the watershed over the past weeks and the lower mountain soil is still water saturated in many areas. Lake-near creeks show increased water flow and lake and river levels remain well above normal for this time of year. Most sandbanks in the Shuswap Lake are submerged again and hiding just inches below the surface. During the 2 weeks of this month alone, Shuswap Lake levels have risen by well over a foot.
The forecast for the second half of this month predicts colder weather and more rain and snow even down to lower elevations. If correct, the Shuswap should see its first cold-snap for this winter by mid next week with temperatures potentially dropping as low as -7C at lake elevations.
Lots of snow has fallen into the Shuswap mountains, preparing higher snowmobile trails for an early winter season. All snow pillow stations in the Shuswap currently show a snowpack of between 73cm and 100cm with consistent temperatures well below freezing, temporarily dropping as low -14C around 1,800m elevations. The snow is definitely here to stay...
