Latest Shuswap News, Comments, and Updates

Shuswap Lake: April 15, 2021  

Temperatures are to climb into the mid 20s this weekend, likely triggering an increased water flow in mountain creeks next week. Therefore, the Shuswap Lake level rise may start to accelerate as early as late next week. Snowpack, weather patterns, and current lake levels are still very similar to last year, thus indicating a similar rapid lake level rise and peak levels again this year.

Taking advantage of the warm weather, boat traffic on the lake is increasing rapidly and public beaches at Shuswap Lake and along the lower Shuswap River are well visited already. However, with daily new COVID cases still at all-time high, practicing social distancing and wearing a face mask remains most important at this time.

Mountain Snowpack: April 15, 2021  

Mountain temperatures are now above freezing even during nighttime which has triggered some snow melt of the top snow layers. The melt water is still being trapped in lower snow layers, slowly destabilizing the consistency of the sun exposed snowpack. As air temperatures continue to warm up this weekend, snow water could reach the mountain soil as soon as early next week and may lead to an increased water flow in many runoff creeks.
