Unsettled weather making high-water predictions uncertain

Levels of Shuswap Lake continue to remain relatively stable around the 348.9 metre mark, despite some rainfall activity in the Shuswap in the early to late morning.

The Shuswap Emergency Program continues to monitor the water levels and weather forecasts closely in case additional rainfall pushes lake and river levels higher. At this time, unsettled weather patterns are making it difficult to determine if the lake has peaked or if the high-water mark will be reached later into the week.

We continue to remind people to be cautious around all water sources. Those in flood-prone areas are also advised to maintain their flood protection measures. Wind, and any resulting wave action, could increase localized flood issues.

Lake and river levels, as well as sand and sandbag locations, can be monitored through the Shuswap Emergency Program’s mapping dashboard
