State Water Supply and Snowpack Remain Below Normal

State Water Supply and Snowpack Remain Below Normal

The National Weather Service has released the latest water supply outlook and snowpack report for Wyoming. The report shows that much of the state remains below average. State Hydrologist Jim Fahey says that the northeast part of the state is fairing much better than other parts of Wyoming.

Fahey indicated that the next couple of months will be the deciding factor on whether we face another dry summer or not.

Fahey said that the snowpack was lowest in southern Wyoming at 65 to 80 percent of normal and that runoff into Wyoming reservoirs will be pretty low this year if more snow doesn't pile up in the mountains this spring.
