Weekly Snowpack and River Report

January 16, 2020

Snow water equivalent (SWE) increased at all SNOTEL sites over the last week and snowpack in the Roaring Fork Watershed is currently 111% of normal for this time of year.  The statistics generated to analyze snowpack data are based on a 30-year average; specifically using data from 1981-2010. To learn more about SWE and the implications of snowpack on drought, flooding, summer river flows and the local economy, join Roaring Fork Conservancy and a snow surveyor from NRCS by touring a SNOTEL site on McClure Pass on February 2.
