June 24, 2017: Shuswap Commentary

The Shuswap is currently experiencing another heat wave. This time, dry and hot weather is here to stay for a while. Temperatures around 30C and above can be expected well in to weekend of next week. The Environment Canada Weather Office has released a Special Weather Statement to this fact. For more details please click the "Weather Warnings" button below. Boaters are well advised to carry sufficient fluids (i.e. bottled water, not beer) on the day trips at the lake. The use of sunscreen is also advised, especially for kids and sun-sensitive people. On the lake, sun is reflected by the water; watch out not to get more of that than you wish for.
We all know about the windchill factor in the winter. Did you know that windchill has an reverse effect at hot days? At an air temperature of 29C and above, wind will heat up your body; the more wind, the worse it gets. Feeling the wind on a hot day during your boat ride may feel cool but in reality it is heat-charging your body. The same is true for cooling fans as well. Therefore, if you are feeling hot on the lake, going for a quick, speedy ride will do you no good. Be aware of that. During the hottest time of the day it is best to stop at a nice beach, get into some shade, and let your body cool down a bit. Always watch your passengers for signs of heat sickness.
Be safe and have fun on Shuswap Lake.
