Temperatures are consistently very warm in the Shuswap, reaching up to 35C again today. Remember to carry sunscreen for your children or sun-sensitive skin and also to bring sufficient fluid on your day trips or when boating on the lake. See some shade occasionally to let your body cool down.|
The August long weekend is coming up again and the weather will be great for lots of outdoor activities on the Shuswap beaches and the lake. It is also a great opportunity to spend some time in the cool shade of the parks around the Shuswap. Always plan a trip ahead of time, keep emergency numbers on hand, and stock up on essentials like bottled water and sunscreen.
And don't forget: there is a campfire ban in effect for all of the Shuswap. Grass and brushes are still dangerously dry and can quickly burn out of control. Never throw burning cigarettes out of car windows. Use a portable ashtray for your butts.
