And still rising ! ! !
After an historically snowy spring, Colorado’s snowpack currently stands at 473% of normal (almost 5 times normal), with highs peaking at 846% (more than 8 times normal!) in the San Juan Mountains, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
“Snowpack is holding on late,” according to the Colorado Water Conservation Board. As we enter June, only 38% of the statewide snowpack has melted.
Snowpack percentage still rising
However, the melting “significantly” slowed in May as winter-like conditions returned to the state, with the snowpack percentage actually rising last week.
Now everyone is worried about flooding, because “a much higher amount of snow is still available to melt as the state heads into the much warmer month of June.”
