Itís time to start comparing the snowpack to the normal peak since for most sites thatíll happen by the end of the month. For the Ark thatís currently 59%.

Colorado SNOTEL Snowpack Update Report

In comparison to last year, itís looking like there will be a later melt giving a better chance for a higher peak, but still a short season for greater than low flows.

Thanks for the buzz kill Bruce. I'm going with KSC's data. That shit seems legit. Plus I saw that Escalante is already cranking.

There is something (four letter word) that I think we may have missed this season. I am hopeful. I don't think I have heard about it or seen it.

The good news is snow pack is better than last year. Too bad it's last year that we have to compare it to for a positive.

I hope KSC is right.

Daily comparisons to last year are misleading now, since the snowpack levels were rapidly dropping by this time a year ago. Statewide the snowpack peak looks to be almost the same as last year just the melt is going to be later this year. Basin by basin, itís looking like the Yampa and N Platte have the best chance at peaking higher than last year. More snow is in the forecast for next week, but the outlook has that favoring the north, too.

I live in Palisade, work in Parachute so I drive along the Colorado River every day. Seems to me that with last week of warm temps I should have seen some flow increase in the old Colorado but no indeed. Not even any discoloration until Mesa Creek dumps in. I'm thinking the ground is thirsty and once again the air is sucking the moisture right up into space. If the snowpack peak is now, and it is only 12" water content, we will have even less runoff than last year. Maybe get an opportunity to "zero" those flow gages in late summer. booo
