Automated Snow Weather Station Commentary

UPDATED: April 18, 2017
A bi-weekly commentary of snow conditions based on readings from the BC Automated Snow Weather Station (ASWS) network is published during the snow season.

Moderately wet and cool weather over the past two weeks has led to a modest upswing in snow accumulation. The provincial average for all ASWS's is 95% of long-term average, and ranges from a low of 71% in the Peace to a high of 125% in the West Kootenay.

Typically April 15th is when the annual maximum snow accumulation occurs at the province's snow weather stations.

The next Snow Survey and Water Supply Bulletin is planned for release by end of day May 8th 2017.
