The Shuswap weather has been mostly wet during the past few days. This trend will continue for at least another week, with rain and rain showers dominating the local forecast. First layers of snow have accumulated in the upper mountain range. Cooler temperatures are slowly lowering the snow line and we should see first layers of fresh snow around the popular snowmobile trails. The frost line during nighttime should reach as low as 2,000m next week.|
Most of the Shuswap soil is saturated by the recent rain. New rain will quickly drain into the Shuswap Lake, elevating the lake levels between 1/2 to 1 inch per day. Various creeks of the watershed have been coming back to life, after barely carrying any water for some time.
Web site updates are done twice a week on Monday and Thursday for the rest of this year. Measurements are still taken daily.
