As of March 13th the Shuswap runoff has started for this year. Since then lake levels have been quickly increasing at a rate much faster than usual at this initial stage. Wet snow, rain, and warmer temperatures have been the main factors for a rapid lake inflow. Much of the near lake snowpack has now melted away and the mid-range mountain snowpack is starting to break down as well. The beginning of the runoff is right where it should be this year at about one month later than last year. With the weather forecast predicting more rain showers and temperatures near 15C this week, lake levels con be expected to increase in a rapid rate for at least one or two weeks. Furthermore, daytime temperatures in higher elevations are already above freezing and could further accelerate this year's runoff towards another early lake level peak. The snowpack, currently averaging around 2 meters, is wet and sticky and might start to collapse rather quickly as early as next month. It seems as the Shuswap winter is now officially over.

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.
