Snowfall On The Light Side

Winter Storm Warning Saturday

If you think the snow in this region seems a little on the shy side this year, you are right. Snowfall so far this season in northwestern Wyoming is still slightly less than average, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Measurements taken on Wednesday showed the Snake River Basin has received 87% of its seasonal average precipitation with a water content of 83%. The Yellowstone basin has received 94% of average precipitation containing 90% of the average water content. The Wind river basin has not fared as well, having seen only 69% of the average seasonal precipitation while the water content was somewhat higher at 76%. Similarly, the Madison/Gallatin basin has only received 68% of its average snowfall containing 64% of the average water content. All of these basins had seen significantly over 100% of their normal precipitation for the first three months of the season by the last week of December. Meanwhile, there is still enough snow in the area for recreating with four to five feet of snow in the upper elevations of the Teton Range, three feet in the Togwotee Pass area and two to four feet in the Wyoming and Salt River Ranges.
