September 20, 2017: Shuswap Update
I have been out of town for a while and unable to update this web site on a regular basis. However, as of today updates will resume daily as usual.

Within a few days the hot summer has ended suddenly and switched into a much cooler fall climate with nighttime temperatures almost having dropped to freezing. In fact, some of the higher elevations, including highways, have seen the fist early snow. Weather-wise, this year has been strange; and it is not over yet. However, temperatures are predicted to return to normal fall weather shortly and some rain may actually reach the Shuswap later this week. Hopefully it will be enough to help getting the plenty wildfires under control. The smoke has finally cleared off in most regions of the Shuswap and has been replaced by clouds.
Shuswap Lake levels have dropped to record low for this time of year, well over a foot lower than compared to last year. It is likely that many docks will be out of the water this winter again. Many sandbanks near the shoreline are already exposed or dangerously close to the surface. Boaters should be aware of this when approaching the beaches. Boat traffic on the lake has significantly slowed down and once again most public beaches are now empty. Also, most seasonal businesses are starting to close down for the winter. Another busy season has come to an end.
