Record-breaking temperatures in April melted a lot of the snowpack for the Okanagan and boosted seasonal runoff.

The Okanagan’s current average snowpack is 75 per cent of normal, down from 131 per cent of normal last month.

Last year’s May snowpack was at 57 per cent of normal, while last April’s was at 76 per cent of normal.
