Mountain snowpack in Wyoming remains below average


CHEYENNE, Wyoming — Mountain snowpack in Wyoming remains below average midway through winter.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports slightly less snow than usual fell across Wyoming in January.

Precipitation ranged from only half the normal amount in north-central Wyoming to as much as one-and-a-half times normal in far southern Wyoming.

Statewide, mountain snowpack remains only about 80 to 85 percent of average.

Reservoir storage could help offset below-average spring snowmelt if the trend continues. Reservoirs statewide are between 110 and 120 percent of their average levels.
