Nothing new on the Shuswap... There has been some rain today and temperatures have dropped into the lower 20C. More rain showers are expected until the middle of this week.|
Approaching rain showers are frequently preceded by sudden, short, and often strong winds which can cause rough wave actions on the Shuswap Lake. Especially smaller boats this situation can quickly become serious when caught in the middle of the lake. Always watch out for dark clouds and stay close to the shoreline when the winds start to pick up. Usually, winds die down as quickly as they appear; therefore, beaching the boat for a few minutes may always a good advise.
