April 01, 2020: Shuswap Winter Update
Most of the low elevation snowpack is now gone. Lake levels are still below average but, given the nightly rain showers during the past few days, have slightly increased a bit. The weather still remains to cool to start this year's main runoff. The snowline has come down to approx. 800m and last night's short snowfall has reached lake elevation again. Temperatures in the mountains are well below freezing, thus preventing a snowmelt in mid-range and lower elevations.

The weather should be warming up a bit by mid next week and might be starting the first phase of the runoff. That would be about 2 weeks later than last year and between 3-4 weeks later than during the previous few years. This delay could shift the runoff into the hotter summer period with faster snowmelt and rapid lake level increases near the lake peak. So far, this year's conditions are very similar to the 2012 flood year and we can expect a significantly higher peak level than last year.
