Latest Shuswap News, Comments, and Updates

Shuswap Lake: September 19, 2021  

All remaining xx active wildfires in the Shuswap watershed are classified as under control - meaning: the fires are as good as out. Recent rain showers and colder temperatures have successfully prevented any further fire activity in the area and finally bringing the awful fire season to an end. The campfire ban has also been lifted last week, only leaving the "Open Fire" ban in place until mid October.
Lake levels have been unusually low lately but slightly increased over the past 2 days due to the local rainfall. Watch out for hidden sandbanks close below the lake surface; especially close to the shoreline. Surface water temperatures now have also dropped into the 17°C range. There are still a few boats in the water but most public beaches are now empty. Seasonal businesses already preparing for the winter shut-down.

Mountain Snowpack: September 19, 2021  

Mountain temperatures have dropped below freezing again, turning some overnight rain showers into a first light snowfall in higher elevations; especially in the Hunters Range and Celista Mountain. However, most of the snow was gone before noon but, as the rocky mountain soil is cooling down rapidly, snow in high altitudes is sure to stay very shortly.
As of October 1st the snowpack dashboard will be switched to show mountain snow levels again.
