Snow Accumulations Still Below Average Here

NRCS

While Jackson woke up to over eight inches of snow on the ground Tuesday morning, it may be a bit of a surprise that snow accumulations in the mountains from this and other recent storms have been significant, but less than average  Reports from the Natural Resources Conservation Service show precipitation in the Snake River basin is still only 87% of normal while accumulations in the southern Yellowstone region are about 96% of normal.  At the same time, however, the water content of those accumulations is appreciably above average. NRCS officials say this early in the season, the percentages are subject to dramatic changes from week to week. Over the next week, forecasters are calling for above normal precipitation.
