Latest Shuswap News, Comments, and Updates

Shuswap Lake: April 10, 2021  

Following the recent rain period, Shuswap Lake levels have risen slightly today as water from lower lake-near mountains has drained into creeks and rivers. However, with temperatures expected to rise into the lower 20s next week, lake levels will start to increase more rapidly as of mid to late next week.
With the remaining snowpack now deeper than last year, spill-overs and mild flooding comparable to last year are becoming increasingly more likely again this year.

Mountain Snowpack: April 10, 2021  

Another layer of new snow has been added to the mountain snowpack last night. Cooler temperatures dropped the snow line to almost touching the lake this morning; however, most of the low elevation snow has been melted away by the afternoon.
During the rain period of the past 3 days, lots of new snow was added to the midrange and alpine snowpack. While Silver Star Mountain and Park Mountain at the south end of the Hunters Range only received 5 cm (2 in) and 8 cm (3 in), the Hunters Range and Celista Mountain gained significantly more snow with 18 cm (7 in) and 20 cm (7.9 in). Celista Mountain has consistently getting the most new snow this late in the spring.
As of today, the Hunters Range and Celista Mtn snowpack has grown higher than last year at this date. Not much snow melt can be expected this week, as nighttime temperatures remain well below freezing during the night and, despite mostly sunny weather in the forecast, barely warming up during daytime. That will change next week with the almost summer-like temperatures moving into the Shuswap.
