Shuswap Lake Dashboard Snowpack Dashboard COVID Dashboard
November 19, 2020 : Shuswap and COVID Update

The Shuswap weather has been mostly wet but fairly mild all week. The roughly 4 inches of wet snow from last week is now gone and temperatures have been steady at slightly above freezing all week. The current rainy weather is expected to continue for at least another week. Similar to previous years Shuswap Lake levels have been slowly increasing since mid October, closely matching the 20-year average for this time of year.
The current mountain snowpack is also close to the conditions of the past 2 years, whereas the snowpack is slightly higher in some areas and a bit lower in others. As usual, the Hunters Range snowpack takes the lead with about 130 cm (just over 4 ft), whereas the Celista Mountain shows roughly half of that. The snowpack at most local snowmobile trails is currently at about 3 feet but likely still wet and sticky at the surface. Air temperatures in the mountains are currently just slightly below freezing.

COVID-19:
The daily COVID case count for BC has sharply increased during the past 2 weeks and is breaking records almost on a daily basis. Yesterday's daily count showed 761 new cases; the highest BC count ever and, for the first time, surpassing the daily case count of Alberta by a total of 31 cases. While the total BC COVID count is still roughly half of Alberta and 4th highest in Canada, in terms of new daily cases BC has now moved into 3rd place behind Quebec and Ontario. Reported daily deaths in BC have also increased and are now similar to the counts in Alberta and Manitoba.
Given the high population density in the BC Coastal and Fraser regions, those areas account for most of the infections in BC. However, COVID is slowly reaching deeper into rural areas and previous safe zones. Therefore, it is most important to wear a face mask in public, frequently washing hands, and to use hand sanitizers before and after visiting a store. Taking those measures not only may protect others but also can protect yourself and your family. Inconvenience is just a small price to pay...
