Latest Snowpack Reports Continue to Hold Promise

Sunday, January 27th, 2008 9:40am MDT

Snowpack above normalSnowpack reports as of this morning continue to hold great promise for Colorado.  All of the major basins are above average with the exception of the South Platte.  Another major snowstorm is hitting the mountains today and yet another is forecast for Wednesday.  We can only hope this pattern continues and NOAA’s forecasts of a dry first quarter don’t hold true.

It would however be nice if some of that moisture would move out onto the front range and into the Denver area and the plains.  There is a chance for a bit of snow in the metro area tomorrow and again on Wednesday although right now it doesn’t look like they will amount to much.
