June 20, 2018: Shuswap Lake Update - Thunderstorms and Strong Wind Gusts Ahead
This week has been very hot so far with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s C. Even the higher mountains are unusually hot, causing an accelerated melt of the remaining snowpack, and slowing down the daily lake level drop to just about an inch. However, the weather forecast predicts various thunderstorms starting this Thursday with very strong wind gusts and potentially heavy downpours in some areas. It could well bring the lake level drop to a temporary stop.
Boaters should be aware that winds in the open lake area can turn very nasty very quickly and can cause waves multiple feet high. Don't try to ride it out on the lake; get close to the shoreline or better find a sheltered bay and wait it out. Make sure your boat is safely tied to the dock.
The weather should turn nicer and a bit cooler just in time for the weekend.
