Saturday Snowpack Update

Saturday 3/27/21 1:45 pm

As promised, the snowpack has greatly improved over the last week! I added the totals from a week ago next to the new totals so you can compare the improved numbers to the pre-storm cycle readings.  If you missed the post last week where I explained how to read this table, you can find an explanation here

I circled a couple of dates for the Cascade readings to point out that those sites are already past their peak dates. They are bringing down the Basin Index.

There is not a lot to talk about in the short term. We should experience a brief warm-up through Monday. Monday night through late Tuesday another system will clip areas to our north. At the moment, it looks like Telluride could get a couple of inches of snow. Just a heavy dusting for other areas. Wednesday will be cool, then we should experience a dramatic shift to warmer weather.

I am no longer seeing a storm around Easter, but there are some signs that we will go into a more active period of weather around or after April 8th.

I will be keeping my eye on the situation and will post as I see things that catch my eye. Thanks for following and supporting the site!

    Thanks very much for the detailed snowpack update.

    Not a good year for the La Platas…that Sharkstooth number! Yikes.

    Most of the other sites, though, have numbers we can live with.
