Except for one or two areas, the westwide snowpack is normal or above-normal for this time of year and, in some cases, double normal.
Considerable storms in California and Utah have significantly boosted the snowpack, with the Tahoe basin sitting at 187% normal and the Wasatch at 166% normal.
California’s statewide snowpack is 205% of normal. According to the East Bay Times, the Sierra snowpack is at its highest level since 1995, and the fourth highest since records begain in 1950.
Mammoth Mountain, CA, has seen more than 500″ of fresh snow at its summit, and a number of ski areas in Utah have surpassed 400″.
One thought on “Snowpack Normal or Above Normal Across Most of the West | California Biggest Snowpack Since 1995”
Did anyone else hear this next storm is going to end the apocalyptic CA drought? Ya you’re not going to hear about that.
You’re also not going to hear how CA has not added any water storage capacity in 50 years. So when all the snow melts its going to flow out to the ocean and CA will back to its water storage crisis. Manmade crisis. Let’s 5x the population in 50 years and add no additional water infrastructure.
Typical CA genius and innovation.
Excited to see their rolling blackouts in the next decade. Enviro regulation fairly tail concepts over time evolving into real world infrastructure engineering shortfalls.
Do better ppl. Do math.
