January 14, 2019 : Shuswap Update

Once again, winter seems to come late to the Shuswap this year. Temperatures are still fairly mild and only drop slightly below freezing overnight. So far we only had 2 snow periods and lots of it has already melted away again in lower elevation. Some change in weather seems to be coming this week. Nighttime temperatures are predicted to fall below -10C at places over the next few days and a new period of snowfall should start shortly before the weekend.
Weather in higher mountains has been similarly mild recently, even so the current snowpack is largely identical to last year around this time. Daytime temperatures have also been around and above freezing and the last few days have been mostly sunny and nice. However, the snowpack of mostly powder snow has somewhat compacted on the surface. While the sunny weather will be holding for a little longer, temperatures can be expected to drop as well and into the negative double digits during nighttime. New snow might be coming into the mountains starting this weekend.
Shuswap Lake levels are slightly above the 20-year average right now and about a foot higher compared to last year at this time. The surface water temperature is steadily holding slightly above freezing and no signs of ice have been found along the shoreline as of yet.
