WY Snowpack Down Slightly on Average

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Total snowfall in Wyoming this season is slightly below average - but the real snow picture depends where you are. The Casper Star-Tribune reports that snowfall statewide is 93 percent of the historical median. The Natural Resources Conservation Service says that the actual snow picture depends on the region within Wyoming.

The northwestern part of Wyoming is on track for a normal, snowy winter. But the NRCS says the southeastern part of Wyoming is severely lacking snowfall. The Snake River drainage basin in northeastern Wyoming is 121 percent of the 1981-2010 median and the Belle Fourche drainage basin in the Black Hills is 36 percent.
