November 28, 2016: Weekly Commentary
Despite another week of rain and rain showers Shuswap Lake levels have started to drop slowly after reaching the winter record peak of 346.465m on November 20Th. This has surpassed the previous winter record levels by 0.23m of November 3, 2005, and calculates to almost 0.88m (35 in) above average. Therefore, the 2017 runoff will start at a higher base level and is likely to peak higher than in the past 3 years.
The snowline has come down significantly and snow can be seen on most mountains in the Shuswap. The high-elevation snowpack has grown to over 2 feet which is well below last year and the historical average for this time of year. However, with continued rain and snow in the forecast, snow levels are expected to grow throughout this week.
Shuswap temperatures are now dropping to sub-zero values during nighttime. Watch out for slippery or icy conditions, especially in the early morning hours. Higher regions of the Shuswap may also see some snow on the road later this week. Check out DriveBC before starting longer trips to avoid some nasty surprises on the roads. Now is the time to check your lights and tires and keep some warm boots, a warm jacket, gloves, and a blanket in your trunk. It may come handy when waiting in a road block for whatever reason. Winter is here to stay and usually becomes nasty when it is the least expected.

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.
