Snow Water-equivalent Above 100%

snow measurements

Warmer and drier weather dominated the past weekend, but the wet week the preceded it brought with it some welcome news for Northwestern Wyoming. According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Snake River Basin is now boasting 103% of its average snow water equivalent for this time of year.  The Yellowstone Basin which includes the Two Ocean Plateau is currently at 102% of its 30-year average, and the Wind River Basin which includes Togwotee Pass is at 98% of its average.  Meanwhile, the reservoirs across the Upper Snake River Basin continue to fill with the storage now reported to be at 77% of the system’s total capacity.  While these statistic shouldn’t indicate the area’s near-drought conditions are over, the moisture is considered a degree of relief for the region.
