The latest snowpack snow-water equivalent analysis shows only a handful of basins presently sit above average. These basins are located in the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, as well as interior ranges near the Canadian border. All basins in the upper Colorado and Great Basin are below average.
The forecasts through April 1st suggest that the snowpack in Utah and the adjoining upper Colorado Basin and Great Basin will slip further into the red. It won't be bone dry as we may see some spring showers, but there's little hope of a big dump through the end of March. A spring miracle is needed in April if we are to avoid a second consecutive year of meager runoff.
