Weeks till Lake is Normal
Okanagan Lake is down 1-centimetre from Sunday and now sits at 343.181 metres above sea level.
Jason Luciw at the CORD Emergency Operations Centre, says the drop in the lake's level is welcome news, but it has a long way to go before reaching more normal levels. Residents are being reminded that flood protections should remain in place as Okanagan Lake is still 70-centimetres above normal for this time of year and likely won't get back to normal until sometime in August.
Kal Lake, meantime, has dropped 6-millimetres and now sits at 393.361 metres.
Environment Canada is forecasting sun and seasonable temperatures for the official start of summer.
However, Meterologist Alyssa Charbonneau says we aren't done with the wind yet. A low pressure system Tuesday night could test flood protections along Okanagan Lake. She says we could see winds out of the southwest at 30km/hr, gusting to 50.
Charbonneau says we'll see 30 degrees by Saturday.
