May 23, 2016: Weekly Commentary
Yesterday's rain dumped 15cm (6 in) of fresh snow into higher mountains, bringing the snowpack levels back to levels of a week ago. Rain has also swollen river and creeks and led to a new lake level increase of 1 inch. More rain can be expected by the mid of this week and temperatures will likely drop into the lower 20th Celsius. Shuswap Lake levels will continue to increase for another 7 to 10 days at least, but will unlikely reach flood levels this year.
Recent cooler temperatures have allowed the lake to drain its water as fast as the inflow; a week's worth of runoff has basically washed through the lake without affecting the lake levels. Therefore, it is increasingly unlikely that we see any flooding or spill-overs outside the lower floodplains.
The waterflow in most major rivers has slowed down. Shuswap River still shows high river levels with some spill-over into farmland near Mara Lake.

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.
