April 23, 2014: Shuswap Lake Update
Continuous rain throughout the day has caused standing water everywhere. The already saturated soil cannot absorb more water, causing a rapid surface flow to creeks and rivers. Shuswap Lake has reacted quickly to the rain, rising the lake level again by over 2 inches. With more rain in the forecast this trend will continue for another week or more. The regular runoff has stopped; temperatures are not high enough to continue the snow melt on mid-range mountains.
The mid- and upper range snowpack has rapidly increased over the past few days. The snowpack is already close to the peak level of last year, well above normal, and most likely to surpass this mark in the next few weeks. Shuswap Lake has reached its normal average level and should quickly go above normal in the next few days.

A new report has been released from the UN World Meteorological Organization, indicating a high potential for an El Nino event close to the peak of the runoff this year. If those weather models are correct, the Shuswap region may see increased rain periods similar to 2012 during the peak of the runoff, followed by another hot and dry summer. Source: WMO Report

The long winter of 2013/14 is coming to an end, temperatures are getting warmer, snow is melting, and the Shuswap Lake is slowly rising again. is getting ready for the new season.

Shuswap tourism still remains in a recovery phase since the 2012 flood. Therefore, we are working on extending the web site content with focus on tourism and local businesses. We will be seeking a closer relationship with local communities, offer more local news, provide information about local events, introduce more local businesses and services in detail, establish a free classifieds service, create a free online store for local crafts, products, and services, place various live web cams around the lake, and much more. And, of course, will remain a low-cost advertising platform for local businesses and services.
