Snow pack definitely needs a recharge, but we're not in bad shape...

Hoping this forecast verifies:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast - 26 January to 04 February, 2014 - High pressure ridging aloft holds across most of the the western US including Colorado early next week, with mostly sunny skies and milder temperatures for the most part. The next storm and shot of snow may move in late next week (last 2 days of January and moving into early February), with potential snow for all Colorado resort areas, possibly significant as these look like stronger Pacific-origin storms (much more moisture laden than most storms this season). The unsettled and "stormy" pattern may become progressively colder and more entrenched across the east Pacific and western US incl Colorado as we move through early February, for more significant snow storms (on track, still expected).

Snow Maps!

A couple of the maps include:

24 Hour Total Non-Snow Precipitation

Snowpack Total Water Equivalent

24 Hour Total Snow Melt

Snow Melting rate Change in 24 Hours

I think the data those are sourced from come from here:

National Snow Analyses - NOHRSC - The ultimate source for snow information

I have used these for sometime when planning fishing trips to our higher elevations...

...I dunno if that'll help y'all out as I don't have to depend on snowpack for my floating. (thank goodness! I think I would drive myself crazy over the winter watching those things trying to forecast how my boating season would go)

I've been looking at this site, and hoping for more snow of course. Idaho Northern SNOTEL Snow/Precipitation Update Report
