Latest Shuswap News, Comments, and Updates

Shuswap Lake: April 26, 2021  

Shuswap Lake levels are currently rising at a rate of roughly 1 inch per day, bringing the total level increase for this runoff season to 41.8 cm (16.5 in) so far. Overnight mountain temperatures are still in the freezing range, slowing down the snow melt at this time. However, with some potential rain periods or showers in the near forecast, the daily lake level rise could start to accelerate as early as mid next week. The mountain snowpack is now a bit lower than last year and first estimates suggest that Shuswap Lake is unlikely to reach peak levels close to last year. Weather conditions in late May will become a main factor again this year.

Mountain Snowpack: April 15, 2021  

Mountain temperatures are now above freezing even during nighttime which has triggered some snow melt of the top snow layers. The melt water is still being trapped in lower snow layers, slowly destabilizing the consistency of the sun exposed snowpack. As air temperatures continue to warm up this weekend, snow water could reach the mountain soil as soon as early next week and may lead to an increased water flow in many runoff creeks.
