Shuswap Lake levels continue to rise at normal rates for this time of year. Once again, the runoff started earlier than usual and is now about 3 weeks ahead of time. Water temperatures are increasing slowly as the cold snow water is reaching the lakes. Boats can be seen frequently on the lake again and local summer businesses are slowly getting ready for the season. This week's weather should be mostly dry and partially sunny. Temperatures are getting close to the low 20C and creeks and local waterfalls are carrying increased amounts of water. Winter is definitely over.
Snow is still accumulating in higher mountains. Most of the high elevation snowpack is now near normal for this time of year. The snow pack has now reaches a depth of between 8 and 10 feet which is fairly normal for this region. However, daytime temperatures are climbing above freezing and already turning the upper layers wet and slushy. A few hot days will make a lot of water running downhill in a hurry.

What's New
We have completed our review regarding a potential shutdown of this site and decided to continue as usual for a few more years. It wasn't an easy decision, as other commitments make it increasingly difficult to keep the site up-to-date on a daily basis. We continue to accept limited advertising to offset the cost of maintaining this site. Your support is most appreciated.
We are also planning to extend the site content to offer more free and paid services later the year. More details will follow shortly.
