Snowpack levels continue to rise. More storms.
The recent round of snow we had last week and through the weekend has given our snowpack levels another good shot. On average, most of the basins you see above are up about 5 points compared to one week ago. This puts us in a very comfortable spot as we approach the runoff season. Plus, don’t forget our reservoir levels are running at 75-85% full and this is before the start of the spring melt.
We also have more rain showers and mountain snow on the way. A weak storm is going to move into the northwest and send little surges of moisture in our direction. This will bring a few showers to the valley on Thursday along with a better chance of showers on Friday. The mountains aren’t going to be hit very hard but we could see several inches of new snow at the ski resorts between now and the end of the day Friday.
Drier air will move in this weekend and this will give us partly cloudy skies on Saturday and Sunday. High temperatures will be right where they should be this time of the year…in the mid 50’s. We’ll keep it dry through the first of next week with highs also in the 50’s.
