Last week's heavy snow dump into the Shuswap has finally ended on the weekend. The weather has been getting warmer but still below freezing during the night. Most of the ice cover in the Sicamous channel has broken off and floated away. Temperatures of above 10C can be expected by mid this week, likely to bring nighttime temperatures above freezing as well. It all depends what forecast service is looked at, as most weather services don't even come close of matching the others. However, the general trend appears to be another cloudy week with various rain or rain showers.
Despite the heavy snowfall the snowpack in higher regions remains well below the normal average. The snow in higher mountains seems more wet than usual and has been packing rapidly. We may not see normal snow levels at all before the winter is over.
Mara Lake and Shuswap River are still frozen but the ice-sheet is beginning to crack at various places. Lake levels are dropping slowly and are back to last year's levels for this time of the year.

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.
