Snow Conditions Commentary

June 3, 2019

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.


Persistent ridging across the province created hot weather conditions over the province over the past week, ushering in a period of rapid snowmelt where snow still remains.


Melt has been rapid in areas (pre-dominantly upper elevations) where snow remains. Province-wide, the % of average snow water equivalent averaged all automated snow weather stations has moved from 57% to 28% over the past two weeks. In general, snowpack conditions are 2-4 weeks ahead of normal.

The next snow bulletin is scheduled to be released on June 7, 2019.
