Warmer weather is putting outdoor enthusiasts at risk.
Those thinking about venturing out onto frozen lakes are urged to reconsider as the mercury has risen.
“Ice that was strong yesterday can be at the breaking point today,” the District of Lake Country warns residents. “The changing weather conditions make the ice on lakes and ponds unpredictable. Don’t put yourself or the firefighters assisting with emergency response and ice rescue at risk.”
The Family Day long weekend saw hundreds of people out on Wood, Duck (a.k.a. Ellison), Kalamalka, Okanagan and Swan lakes in the North Okanagan.
