November 18, 2017: Shuswap Update

Snow warning is issued for this weekend. Drive carefully...

After a few mild days, winter is coming slowly back. It is already snowing in the mountains and the snow line is quickly inching lower overnight. Water levels, while holing steady within an inch or so, remain well in the record low range. The lake surface temperature still remains in the 4 to 5 Celsius range which could lead to an early first ice cover with the next cold snap.
The mountain snowpack hasn't seen much increase in the past week; however, this is already changing. New snow can be expected all over the watershed but it might be wet and sticky given the fairly mild temperatures in higher elevations. The Park Mountain snowpack is currently at 61cm, Celista Mountain is at 101cm, and the higher mountains of the Hunters Range are now at 129cm. A 10 - 20 cm snow increase over the weekend is well withing the roam of possibility.
Watch out for ice roads in the early morning hours. Always check out DriveBC before starting a longer trip. Check your windshield washer fluid frequently and best carry some refill in your trunk.
