Shuswap Lake News, Comments, and Updates

March 09, 2013:
The low-elevation snowpack is almost gone while the snowpack in the mountains remains close to normal for this time of the year. The 2013 runoff seems to have started, as the low-elevation snowpack is melting away rapidly. The lake level is current raising about 1.5 in. on average per day. With the disappearance of the low-elevation snowpack this trend should slow somewhat down soon, as current temperatures are still too low to impact the mid-range snowpack in the mountains.
Work on the new shuswaplakewatch.com web site continues and progress has been made. Our current focus is to replace all charts and graphs. Graphs will soon be generated directly on the web page and options are added to allow custom charts based on user input. The new site is expected to be completed by late March of 2013, followed by a new detailed runoff analysis for the flood year of 2012. A few more projects are also in planning for this spring and will be announced here later.
