May 22, 2019 : Shuswap Lake Update

The May long weekend weather wasn't as bad as predicted by the forecast. In comparison to previous years boat traffic on the lake seemed rather light that weekend. Nevertheless, temperatures are getting slowly warmer while the Shuswap is sliding into another hot summer.
Most of the mid-range mountain snow is gone, leaving just some patches of snow in the shade side behind. Even the high mountain snowpack has significantly melted down to about half in comparison to previous years at this time. Most creeks and river levels are expected to drop soon and Shuswap Lake should peak very early this year and well below normal peak levels.
Public beaches are well visited those days, as the water near shallow beaches seems warm enough for a quick swim.
No fire restrictions are issued yet; however, as the weather keeps warming up further, restrictions and bans are sure to follow.
