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. Details and registration can be found at www.roaringfork.org/events.
